This month, volunteers and homeless service providers around the country are conducting the 2015 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count, the only national measure that captures the scope of people experiencing homelessness in the U.S. In the weeks and months that follow the count, the Alliance's Homelessness Research Institute (HRI) will be seeking the PIT Count data collected by communities in order to track homelessness and maintain a 2015 Homeless Counts Map. If you learn of 2015 Count information available for your community, please send it to the Alliance at counts@naeh.org.

Fact Sheets  |  January 27, 2015

The Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Monday, Jan. 26, that as part of the $1.8 billion in grant funding it was awarding to existing projects to fight homelessness, it would award nearly $45 million to new projects in 25 communities. Competition for these grants was based on the comparative strength of these communities’ strategies for leveraging Medicaid funds to pay for health care and services as part of the permanent supportive housing model. Funding for these projects come as a result of the “Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013,” a two-year congressional budget agreement negotiated by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to expand temporarily the limit on federal spending for fiscal year 2014.
