Regional Point in Time Trend Analysis (FREE)
The Point in Time Homeless Trends Dashboard is a free resource available to communities to better understand the scope of homelessness within the community. These Tableau based dashboards are built off of Housing Inventory Chart (HIC), Point in Time (PIT), HUD funding awards, and census information data that we have taken the time to compile together. To use these dashboards, simply click on your state, choose your CoC from the dropdown below the map, and then peruse through the tabs on top to see what is happening with homelessness in your region.
