The PIT Count is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
for Continuum of Care (CoC) funding recipients. The CoC Program provides funding
for efforts by nonprofit providers and state and local governments to quickly rehouse
homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and
dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness.
The Metro Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI, https://www.mdhi.org/) serves as
Metro Denver’s CoC and coordinates Metro Denver’s response to homelessness.
Data and information about the Denver Metro Area’s 2022 and earlier PIT Counts
