A U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development report says nearly 1,400 people experienced homelessness on a single night in January 2019, a decrease of 3.7% from 2018.

Most of that group were found in emergency shelters or transitional housing programs, while nearly 150 people were unsheltered, the report said. HUD Secretary Ben Carson certified the report last month.

The statistics also showed that the number of families with children experiencing homelessness decreased 5 percent from 2018. Homelessness among veterans, which has been decreasing since 2010, decreased 21 percent from 2018 in New Hampshire. On a single night in January 2019, 113 veterans were experiencing homelessness.
