Length of Time Homeless


Target for average length of time persons experience homelessness in Durham is set at 90 days or less (based on federal standards from the United States Inter-agency Council on Homelessness)


Length of time persons experience homelessness in Durham is over 100 days.  This is slightly above the national average and above the state average.   Data for the 2018, reporting period is undergoing the validation process by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  This process typically takes approximately 6 months.  We anticipate HUD approving the submission for the 2018 numbers in the Fall of 2019 for the 2018 submission.

Next Steps

To reduce the time persons remain homeless, efforts will be undertaken to more systematically engage landlords so that resources dedicated to Rapid Rehousing and Housing Choice Vouchers will ensure persons experiencing homelessness have access to rental housing supported by these projects.
