How will the homeless population be counted?

Two ways: Service way enumeration (SBE) and enumeration at transitory locations (ETL). These include shelters with sleeping facilities, shelters for children, soup kitchens or regularly scheduled mobile food vans, and targeted outdoor locations where people sleep unsheltered. This enumeration is set to take place March 30 to April 1 2020.
