Last month, HUD reported homelessness crept up in the US, especially among individuals experiencing long-term chronic homelessness. The agency's 2017 annual report to Congress found that 553,742 people experienced homelessness on a single night during the year, an increase of 0.7 percent since 2016.

Secretary Carson added that working to house the homeless is both the "human thing to do" and "good public policy". The number of families with children experiencing homelessness declined 76 percent since 2016 and 95 percent since 2010.

In Florida, there were nearly 32,200 people who experienced homelessness previous year, a decline of 4 percent. In addition, veteran homelessness increased by 1.5 percent, chronic homelessness increased by 12.2 percent and family homelessness declined by 5.4 percent.
