The Point in Time Count is mandated by HUD as an annual census of people who are unhoused in Clark County
Due to the recent outbreak of the Omicron virus in Clark County, the annual Project Homeless Connect resource and service event originally scheduled for this week has been rescheduled for Thu., Feb. 24.
In addition, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development issued a waiver for local communities to postpone the Point in Time Count until Feb. 24 as well. The Point in Time Count is mandated by HUD as an annual census of people who are unhoused in Clark County.
“With input from Clark County Public Health and the planning partners for both events, we made the determination to postpone for one month,” states Siobhana McEwen, advocacy and equity director for Council for the Homeless. She continues, “We look forward to applying the planning in place already this year and bringing the events to the community in February.”
