A Point in Time Count (PIT) is a one-night estimate of both sheltered and unsheltered homeless populations. This count provides the number and demographic characteristics of persons who are homeless on the night of the count, both sheltered (in emergency shelter or transitional housing on the night of the count) or unsheltered (on the street or in some other place unfit for human habitation) on the night of the count.
The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is completed on the same night of the PIT and provides information on the number of beds and units available to house persons who are homeless on that one night. It also provides the number of beds and units for permanent housing, including rapid re-housing and permanent supportive housing.
The Point in Time & Housing Inventory Counts are held in January each year..
Questions about the Point in Count should be directed to the CoC Coordinator:
