The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a way to assess Sacramento’s capacity to provide housing for those experiencing homelessness.
It collects information about all the beds and units that are available on a designated night. Typically, the count is done once a year at the end of January. The count includes temporary shelter (emergency shelters and transitional housing) and permanent housing (rapid rehousing and permanent supportive housing). The HIC is also used to report which beds are available for individuals, families with children, veterans, transitional-age youth, and those experiencing chronic homelessness. The most recent HIC was conducted on February 23, 2022.
