Point in Time and AHAR


Final Rule on Defining Chronically Homeless

Effective January 15, 2016


A person must have a disability ANDMust have been living in a place not meant for human habitation, in an emergency shelter, or a save haven for the last 12 months continuously OR at least four occasions in the last three months where those occasions cumulatively total at least 12 months.

Summary of changes


Example:Client that meets HUD’s new definition of Chronic Homelessness


There is a touch by a homeless service provider in each month for 12 months continuously It is documented in HMIS (HMIS is an acceptable and the preferred third-party documentation) or other CoC FL-507 approved PSH Forms

Example of client that

meets HUD’s new definition

of CH homelessness & Recordkeeping Requirements


Example: Does NOT meet new definition of CH homelessness


Has been homeless in a place not meant for human habitation however All 12 months are not documented in HMIS or some other verification (please see CoC FL 507- PSH Packet for Forms) or4 episodes do not total the 12 months or Episodes equal 12 months however cannot be documentedNote: *If client participated in Transitional Housing Program his continuous year is interrupted and must meet the definition by the 4 episodes totaling 12 month ( not counting the time in transitional)



OT meet HUD’s new definition

& Recordkeeping Requirements


Replaced “disabling condition” with “Homeless individuals with a disability”

There is not a minimum number of days in which each occasion must total but instead, occasions are defined by a break of at least seven days not residing in an emergency shelter, safe haven, or residing in a place not meant for human habitation


If not 12 consecutive months, then there must be AT LEAST 4 episodes in 3 years, for a total of 12 months. Example: One episode of 11 months with a break, followed by another episode of 10 months won’t meet criteria.Stays in institutions of fewer than 90 days DO NOT constitute a break and DO count toward total time homeless, and


The final rule establishes recordkeeping requirements for documenting chronic homelessness that take into account how providers use HMIS and DOES NOT require documentation of each day of homelessness but a method that can be more easily implementedFuture guidance coming out on the definition of institution


Data collected and examined shows the need to focus on people with disabilities whose homelessness has been long and continuous.

Why the changes?


Common verification documentation Work with public systems to assist with documentation housing status when people enter and exit their systems Work with Bowman to improve sophistication of HMIS reportsWork with DV providers on how to include households not in HMIS
