HUD AWARDS $1.4 BILLION IN GRANTS TO HOMELESS PROGRAMS
December 23, 2009
The grants are being awarded through HUD’s Continuum of Care programs. For the first time ever, HUD is quickly providing renewal grants to local programs to prevent any interruption in Federal assistance and will announce funding to new projects in early 2010. For a local summary of the grants, visit HUD’s website.
“As we move into the coldest time of the year, it’s critical that no program risk running out of money to keep their doors open,” said Donovan. “These grants will make certain that those programs on the front lines of helping the homeless have the resources they need to house and serve persons who might otherwise be forced to turn to the streets.”
