Services: Program evaluation

Research Areas: Economic Development, Housing & Community Development

On January 27, 2011, the Indiana University Public Policy Institute (PPI) in coordination with the Coalition on Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP) conducted the point-in-time 2011 Homeless Count (the count) in Marion County. The count is a biennial requirement by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD is charged with oversight of the distribution of federal funding for programs that aid in combating homelessness. The data collected from the count are used to calculate the amount of funding Marion County receives, and to give more detailed information about people experiencing homelessness to service providers.
