2017 Point-in-Time Count Results

The results of the 2017 Point-in-Time (PIT) count are now available. The PIT Count is an enumeration of persons experiencing homelessness, whether sheltered or unsheltered, on a single night in January. The PIT count is conducted at least biannually in Solano and is a requirement to receive homeless assistance funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The PIT Count uses HUD’s definition of homelessness, which includes persons living in shelters and places not meant for human habitation, but excludes persons who are living doubled up with others due to economic hardship or those living in RV or trailer parks.

For a summary of the PIT Count methodology and results, please view the press releasehere.

The full PIT Count Report can be found here, and an executive summary can be found here.
