Tips and Tricks


Introducing a New Tool for Point in Time

ICA is introducing a new tool to assist CoCs with their unsheltered and non-WISP Point in Time counts.  The tool has two main parts: a point in time survey and a series of calculations that will provide you with the necessary counts you need to submit to HUD.  In addition to helping you obtain counts more quickly and more accurately, the tool has a number of other benefits.  Learn more by watching the recorded demonstration above.
Contact Demetri Vincze (demetri.vincze@icalliances.org) as well as your HMIS Coordinator if you are interested in using the tool for the July PIT or if would like any additional information.
