Notes

  1. See PUNS Form for complete description of supports needed.
  2. Individuals can have emergency, critical, and planning needs. For the purpose of this report, individuals are counted once in the highest category of need checked.
  3. Individuals can, and often do, need more than one type of service. Thus, the totals of the columns would be greater than the number of individuals represented in them.
  4. The unduplicated count of records with current needs does not represent the total number of PUNS records. Some individuals with PUNS records now have all their needs met or have withdrawn for specified reasons.
