2021 Homeless Count (Canceled)
While the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) typically conducts Point in Time (PIT) counts annually, Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires continuums of care to conduct these counts every other year. As a result, HUD would have expected 2021 PIT Count data from LAHSA. After listening to community partners, receiving guidance from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and taking into account curfews and stay-at-home orders across the region, LAHSA determined that there is no safe way to gather the 8,000 volunteers necessary to conduct the 2021 PIT Count and collect data as accurately as it has done in previous years. While LAHSA will not conduct a 2021 PIT Count, it will proceed with its sheltered PIT count and Housing Inventory Count. The 2021 PIT Count would typically have affected funding, LAHSA is working with the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative to maintain the current Measure H funding level. For federal funding, HUD will continue to fund renewals, pending upcoming Congressional action.
