After Point-in-Time Count data collection is completed on February 1, staff will review and prepare the data for submission to HUD. You can expect to see an initial data release via this blog in late May or early June. A full analysis of all survey and PIT data will be released as part of the 2024 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Housing Instability & Homelessness Report.
The work to end homelessness is not a one-night affair. Community support and engagement throughout the year is needed. Stay tuned to www.mecklenburghousingdata.org for the outcomes from the PIT and to learn about the One Number, which is how we track trends in homelessness each month.
