For the first time, HUD required communities to count and report out on the number of youth (ages of 18 to 24) during the January Point-in-Time(PIT) Counts of homeless people. The information, coupled with using Homelessness Management Information Systems (HMIS), will provide communities with improved data on youth homelessness. Presenters will cover PIT Count methodologies, using HMIS to improve data, and how communities can use their data to tell a story.
