A 2015 Point in Time Homeless Count Thank You!

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority would like to thank all of the Continuum of Care Regions, shelter/program staff and the countless number of volunteers who participated in the 2015 Point in Time (PIT) Homeless Count which took place in Indiana on Wednesday, January 28th.

The count, mandated by HUD to take place during the last two weeks in January, will once again give a snap shot of Hoosier individuals and families who were homeless that one night. In the bigger picture, it assists in assessing current programs and gauge whether or not they are working from year to year.

Results from the 2015 PIT will be released later this year.

Questions pertaining to Indiana's annual Point in Time Homeless Count may be sent to Angie Hass, Emergency Solutions Grant Program Analyst.
