What is the Point-In-Time (PIT) Homeless Count?
The Point-In-Time Homeless Count (PIT Count) is an annual census of all sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals in Broward County. The PIT Count is required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and determines federal funding for homeless services and programs. The 2022 Point-In-Time Homeless Count took place January 23-29, 2022. During this time, the Taskforce Homeless Outreach team and teams of trained surveyors scoured the streets of Broward County, engaging with persons experiencing homelessness and gathering critical data that will help planners understand the needs of the homeless community and devise targeted strategies for combating homelessness.
