The City of McAllen, in partnership with the Hidalgo County Urban County Program launched their Annual Point in Time (PIT) Event on January 25, 2024. Through the PIT, the community is able to obtain a report on current state of homelessness in the city and county. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) uses the data from PIT counts to evaluate the effectiveness of local agencies’ efforts to address homelessness and to determine funding amounts for them, and also compiles this data into the Annual Homeless Assessment Report, which is provided to Congress.  

“It’s important we hear from our community, so we can receive the appropriate funding to take action on how to better address homelessness in McAllen,” said McAllen Mayor Javier Villalobos. 

For more information on the ESG Program and the Point of Time survey, please email cdbg@mcallen.net.
