2017 Point in Time Count, Housing Inventory Count, and Project Homeless Connect

The 2017 Point-in-Time Count (PIT) of homeless persons and Housing Inventory Count (HIC) will be conducted the night of January 24, 2017. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires the collection of PIT and HIC data for one night each year to assist in measuring the extent of homelessness within Alaska. This data is later used to advocate for federal and state funding to assist Alaska's homeless. In addition, this data has been a useful tool for housing planning activities in local communities.

For more information about the 2017 PIT, HIC, and Project Homeless Connect events and to download this year's forms, please visit our 2017 PIT, HIC, PHC Website.
