Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR)
The Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) is required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and compiled by Council for the Homeless for Clark County. Each report includes a standardized narrative and various data points about the homelessness system and homeless population in Clark County. There is a separate report detailing Veteran homelessness data.
Data from local social service providers is tracked in the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), which the Council for the Homeless administers. The AHAR is published in January of the following year. The 2015 AHAR will be available in January 2016.
The annual “Clients by Zip Code of Last Permanent Address” report reflects the clients that had a need during the year. Not all clients that presented with a need had the zip code populated.
