Specialized Housing



PITCLogo.jpgEvery year, KHC conducts a K-Count to best monitor the homeless situation in Kentucky. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires such a count every other year, but KHC believes it best serves the people of Kentucky to conduct this count yearly.

Results of the K-Count demonstrate the need for resources for housing and services for homeless persons in each community. The K-Count also helps determine how much federal funding will be awarded from HUD for homeless programs. In addition, the K-Count helps assess progress under Kentucky's Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness and provide important information for updating the plan.

More information is available in the K-Count Info Sheet.

The 2018 K-Count for the Kentucky Balance of State (BoS) will be held on Wednesday, January 31, 2018.

Please note Louisville and Lexington will conduct their counts on a different date from the BoS. For more information, please contact Louisville's Coalition for the Homeless or the Lexington Office of Homelessness Intervention and Prevention.


KHC will hold a training via webinar on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, from 2-4 p.m. ET. Registration for the webinar is required.
