January 25, 2022 | 6:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.
The 2022 PIT Count will take place the morning of Tuesday, January 25, 2022. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact your city's or town's coordinator. Coordinators throughout the region will hold local trainings in their cities during the month of January for volunteers.
COVID-19 Safety Measures
In 2021, due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved the Maricopa Regional CoC to opt out of the unsheltered PIT Homeless Count. This year, HUD has required that the Maricopa CoC participate in the PIT Count. Keeping everyone safe is the main concern of the Maricopa Regional CoC. The count will be paperless to reduce exposure.

Information for Coordinators
As coordinators you will be responsible for the count within your city/town, recruit and coordinate volunteers, schedule and conduct local trainings for volunteers, distribute volunteer training information and PIT documents, and determine the meeting location for the morning of the count.
MAG will hold virtual Train the Trainer sessions for city and town coordinators to ensure an accurate count. A Zoom link will be sent to coordinators before the first session.
