Point in Time Count

Point in Time Count

The Fulton County Department of Community Development (DCD), as the collaborative applicant for the GA-502 Fulton County Continuum of Care (COC), announces the annual Point in Time Count (PITC), effective January 23 in North Fulton and January 24 in South Fulton.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which requires Continuums of Care to conduct Point in Time counts as a means of determining federal funding to address homelessness, encourages an annual count. The count data creates a "snapshot" of the scope and scale of homelessness, which provides policymakers and funders with critical information on the number and demographic characteristics of homeless citizens.

The Fulton County Continuum of Care (CoC) is designed to promote Fulton County cities’ (excluding Atlanta) community-wide commitment to ending homelessness; provide funding for nonprofits and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families; promote access to mainstream programs for homeless individuals and families; and optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness. The Atlanta CoC is independent from Fulton County’s CoC and exclusively supports work in Atlanta.
