2013 Point-in-Time (PIT) and Housing Inventory Count (HIC) Reporting
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. These counts reveal the number of homeless persons in our shelters and on our streets at a single point-in-time. Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.
This page contains official HUD guidance and information related to the Point-in-Time (PIT) Count and Housing Inventory Count (HIC).
