A

Persons who are staying in a hotel or motel and paying for their stay using their own resources should not be included in the PIT count. However, persons who are staying in a hotel or motel with voucher or other form of payment assistance from a homeless assistance provider should be included in the sheltered PIT count. In addition, these beds/units should be included in the HIC as emergency shelter, with the Bed Type designated as ‘voucher’.
