HUD funds 6600 local homeless programs

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) renewed funding for 6597 local homeless programs across all 50 states. The agency awarded $2.5 billion for homeless assistance through its Continuum of Care (CoC) grants.

“HUD wants to ensure that thousands of local homeless assistance providers continue to receive federal funds needed to provide stable housing for people experiencing homelessness during these trying times,” said Acting HUD Secretary Matt Ammon. “Renewing these grants not only offers relief to our local partners but it allows Continuums of Care to continue their work to end homelessness and help keep our most vulnerable neighbors off the streets.”

According to a news release the “grant funding supports a broad array of interventions designed to assist individuals and families experiencing homelessness, particularly those living in places not meant for habitation, located in sheltering programs, or at imminent risk of experiencing homeless.”
