What is the annual Homeless Count?
The Homeless Count, also known as the Point in Time Count of the Homeless, is a comprehensive census of the homeless designed to identify how many people are homeless in Tarrant County and Parker County at a given point-in-time. The Tarrant County Homeless Coalition coordinates a census and survey of the homeless not only to fulfill the HUD requirement for federal funding for a variety of homeless housing and supportive services through the Continuum of Care, but also in order to understand the changing trends, extent, and nature of homelessness. The data will also assist in measuring the degree of success in ending homelessness. The point-in-time count will be the official enumeration not only for federal HUD programs, but also Veteran’s Administration Homeless Assistance Programs and Health and Human Services Homeless Assistance Programs. This data collection event is directly related to future federal funding allocations for the community. Click here for more information.
