Point in Time Count


Across the nation, each Continuum of Care (CoC) is responsible for planning and conducting a Point in Time Count (PIT) of people experiencing homelessness in their community, as required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This count is conducted annually during the last 10 days in January and represent all homeless persons who were sheltered and unsheltered on a single night during that period. This data is used to measure homelessness on a local and national level and is published annually on HUD’s HUD Exchange website, which can be viewed by CoCs and the general public.
