New PIT Count Guidance for CoCs and Domestic Violence Partnership Published

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
 

New Guidance has been released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to better capture the experience of individuals and families that are experiencing homelessness due to fleeing or attempting to flee domestic and intimate partner violence. Starting in 2018, HUD has updated its reporting criteria in the Point-in-Time, the annual homelessness census, to include “those who are currently experiencing homelessness because they are fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking as opposed to reporting on survivors who have ever experienced those circumstances.” 

HUD has published two new resources, Engaging with Domestic Violence Survivors: What CoCs Need to Know and Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of Homeless Persons, to assist the Continuum of Care and domestic violence providers in partnering in the PIT Count.
