Thanks to the National Alliance to End Homelessness for this summary:

This week, HUD released the first full Point-in-Time Count results since 2020. While homelessness overall essentially remained at the same level as in 2020, the deeper results show uneven progress, with declines among some populations (families, youth, and veterans), and increases for others (chronic, individuals, and unsheltered).

Key Increases:

The report shows that on a single night in 2022, at least 582,462 people experienced homelessness in the United States. This represents an increase of nearly 2,000 people since 2020. Of those experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2022, 384,630 were sheltered, and 233,832 were unsheltered.

The overall number of people experiencing unsheltered homelessness increased by 3.4 percent since 2020.

The number of individuals experiencing chronic homelessness increased by 15.6 percent, with a 32.4 percent increase in the number of chronic individuals in shelter and a 7.1 percent increase among people who are unsheltered.

The overall number of individual adults experiencing homelessness (i.e., those not experiencing homelessness as a member of a family unit) increased by 3.1 percent.
