Point-in-Time (PIT) Count
Conduct and organize the annual Point-In-Time (PIT) homeless count. It is a critical source of annual data, providing characteristics of people who are experiencing homelessness.

PIT count data helps policy makers and communities measure progress, identify strengths and gaps in services, increases public awareness of homelessness, and enhances system planning and responses.
