2015 Point in Time (PIT) Count

The PIT reports below represent the 2015 PIT counts (53 Counties in total making up for the Balance of State Continuum of Cares). The data in these reports are used to measure homelessness on a local, state and national level and are published annually on HUD’s HUD Exchange website, which can be viewed by CoCs and the general public.

The PIT count data is also provided annually to Congress as part of the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR).

The AHAR is used by Congress, HUD, other federal departments, and the general public to understand the nature and extent of homelessness. HUD’s PIT count data has become increasingly important as a measure of our local and national progress related to preventing and ending homelessness, especially with relation to our progress towards meeting the goals of Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
