This report presents the number and characteristics of people experiencing homelessness and hunger in cities across the United States, trends in homelessness and hunger over time, and information on the city responses to both social issues. Data reported to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and survey results from mayors who serve on the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ Task Force on Hunger and Homelessness are used in this report.
