2013 Monterey County Homeless Census & Survey
by MoCo News
Tuesday Jun 25th, 2013 11:43 PM
The 2013 Monterey County Homeless Census and Survey Report was received by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors on June 25 from the Department of Social Services.

Every two years, all jurisdictions across the United States receiving federal funding to provide housing and services for the homeless are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to conduct a point in time count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons sometime during the last ten days of January. The data collected through these counts help the federal government and local jurisdictions better understand the nature and extent of homelessness nationwide. Additionally, local jurisdictions use the findings of their point in time count to apply for federal funding for homeless programs. Monterey County currently receives $1.9 million in federal funds for homeless services.
