Request for Proposals (RFP) for Mobile Software and Support for the 2018 Point-in-Time Count (PIT)
Point in Time (PIT) is an annually required activity for all Continuums of Care (CoC) programs. PIT counts are a critical source of data on the number and characteristics of people who are homeless in the United States. This data is used to measure homelessness on a local and national level and is published annually on the HUD Exchange website, which can be viewed by CoCs and the general public. PIT count data is also provided annually to Congress as part of the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR). The AHAR is used by Congress, HUD, other federal departments, and the general public to understand the nature and extent of homelessness.
The need for a mobile application to assist Texas BoS CoC volunteers with conducting the count is essential to decrease the time required to execute and prepare the final report. Using a mobile application has the additional benefits of ease of use for the volunteers, improved reporting, and using a geographical information system to precisely show survey location density.

Now Hiring for Systems Change Coordinator
The Systems Change Coordinator supports communities in the Texas Balance of State Continuum of Care (TX BoS CoC) in the implementation and evaluation of local Coordinated Entry processes. Coordinated entry is an important process through which people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness can access the crisis response system in a streamlined way, have their strengths and needs quickly assessed using a standardized assessment tool, and quickly connect to appropriate, tailored housing and mainstream services within the community or designated region. Coordinated Entry provides the ability for households to gain access to the best options to address their needs, incorporating participants’ choice, rather than being evaluated for a single program within the system. The most intensive interventions are prioritized for those with the highest needs.
