Use of Honoraria in PiT Counts
Communities that conduct Point-in-Time Counts offer honoraria to participants, including money, gift cards, granola bars, backpacks, clothing, blankets, and other items detailed in this paper. The Canadian Observatory on Homelessness has previously commented on the use of honoraria in the Point-in-Time Count Toolkit.
The following is a discussion paper on the use of honoraria in Point-in-Time Counts. Communities will have varying levels of resources when planning and conducting PiT Counts; we suggest that you use the following as a guide and adapt it to meet your local needs.
