What is NJCounts?

NJCounts is the annual Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of individuals and families experiencing homelessness in New Jersey. As required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the count takes place during the last 10 days of January and identifies those persons residing in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs, safe havens and living on the streets or other locations not fit for dwelling. In New Jersey, NJCounts is coordinated on a single day across the state allowing for comparable data across all communities from year to year. Monarch Housing Associates has coordinated NJCounts since 2014 as commissioned by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. Monarch is proud to partner with local governments, service providers, community advocates and volunteers to conduct NJCounts as we work to collect critical data that assists communities in developing a deeper understanding of the need as they work to end homelessness.

Monarch's Role
