Point in Time Reports
The Point-in-Time Count (PIT Count) is federally mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for all communities receiving federal funds through the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants Program. The PIT Count takes an annual unduplicated census of people experiencing homelessness, sheltered or unsheltered, on a given night in January.
Note: There are several limitations to the PIT Count overall. Given its limitations, the PIT Count should not be viewed as an exact number, but rather a useful tool that can be used to estimate characteristics of the Atlanta homeless population and gauge changes in the homeless population over time. Recognizing the value of having accurate and up-to-date data on the number and characteristics of those experiencing homelessness in the City of Atlanta, Partners for Home and the Atlanta Continuum of Care has committed to conducting an annual PIT Count.
