WHAT IS PIT COUNT?
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is an annual count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness. Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally, but is part of a larger initiative led by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.
WHY DO YOU CONDUCT A PIT COUNT?
Point-in-time counts are important because they establish the dimensions of the problem of homelessness and help policymakers and program administrators track progress toward the goal of ending homelessness
WHEN IS THE 2024 PIT COUNT?
The 2024 PIT Count in Onondaga County will occur on January 24th, 2024 from 7 PM to 12 AM.
