HUD released the 2021 Annual Homelessness Assessment Report (AHAR) on February 4. A yearly report examining the prevalence of homelessness in the United States, AHAR typically provides information on both sheltered and unsheltered homelessness. However, in 2021, HUD encouraged communities to consider the potential for COVID-19 transmission and gave them the option of reporting only data on sheltered homelessness. Only 226 communities conducted counts focused on unsheltered homelessness, complicating efforts to extrapolate from the results to the rest of the country. As a result, the 2021 report addresses people experiencing sheltered homelessness only.
