Usage Guidance

  • Organizations should report the gross number of housing units constructed. However, organizations are also encouraged to footnote the net number of housing units constructed (by subtracting from the gross number any housing units lost during the previous reporting period) and to provide relevant details. Organizations should only report housing units whose construction has already been completed, not financed and still under construction.
  • This metric is intended to capture information for housing units in both single family and multifamily buildings.
