More Than $4 Million in HUD Grants Awarded to Arkansas

Ben Carson

According to HUD, "HUD Continuum of Care grant funding supports a broad array of interventions created 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 becoming homeless".

The Department of Housing and Urban Development on Thursday announced an award of $2 billion in support of thousands of local housing and service programs across the U.S. This year's installment of the annual HUD Continuum of Care grants will assist more than 7,300 local programs working to house and serve individuals and families experiencing homelessness in their communities. In San Diego County, 48 separate grants were awarded, totaling $20.03 million. Long Beach will receive about $8.19 million, Pasadena just over $3.25 million and Glendale slightly above $2.41 million. Santa Clara County will receive $22 million.

This year, HUD is continuing to challenge state and local planners to support higher performing local programs that have proven most effective in meeting their local challenges, often shifting funds from existing projects to create new ones that will have a more substantial and lasting impact on reducing homelessness. Programs in Alameda County got the second biggest amount in the Bay Area, at $35 million.

"These local programs are providing vital services to some of our most vulnerable", HUD Secretary Ben Carson said in a conference call with reporters on Thursday.

Heartland Alliance and Thresholds, which both focus on connecting people to medical care and permanent housing, were among the recipients in Chicago.

In December, the department reported an increase in homelessness across the country, particularly among those experiencing long-term chronic homelessness.

Homelessness also inched up about 1 percent across the nation, according to HUD, which found that on a given night across the country in 2017, an estimated 553,742 people were homeless, with nearly two-thirds housed in shelters or transitional housing programs and one-third living on the streets. Family homelessness increased by 4 percent. "We know how to end homelessness".
