2023 State of Homelessness Report

The National Alliance to End Homelessness has issued its State of Homelessness: 2023 Edition. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) data used in this report (from the 2022 Point in Time Count) do not allow the report to capture homelessness among older adults, which homeless services and housing providers and other research shows to be on the steep rise. The report does shed important light on the number of people left homeless because of the lack of affordable housing.

According to the report, the number of individuals experiencing homelessness and the number of chronically homeless individuals were at an all-time high in 2022. According to the Alliance, available data also demonstrates that race and ethnicity are key determinants that impact who will become homeless and the type and depth of rehousing barriers people will experience.
