Point-in-Time Count (PIT) and Housing Inventory Count (HIC)
The PIT count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. HUD requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night.
CoCs are also required to report occupancy numbers for all projects on the HIC for the night of the PIT.
