On Monday, October 22, 2018 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EDT, HUD will be hosting a webinar with Esri to discuss their ArcGIS tools communities can use to address homelessness. These tools include maps and mobile applications that help agencies, service providers, and Continuums of Care (CoCs):
- Conduct homeless Point-in-Time (PIT) counts
- Inventory homeless services
- Report homeless activity
- Analyze factors related to homelessness
These tools are designed to work together as one integrated system that supports the community’s overall efforts to assist people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Nearly every county in the United States already pays for ArcGIS tools. These resources are highlighted in a new Using ArcGIS to Reduce Homelessness document, which also outlines how communities can find out who in their community currently pays for Esri resources. The webinar will provide a more in-depth discussion of the resources, including how communities have already used them to address homelessness. Register today to participate in this webinar.
