HUD Awards $200 Million in Homeless Grants for New Projects

U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan today awarded $200 million in new project funding to support over 15,000 beds and supportive services in communities across the country. The majority of funding will provide housing and services for homeless persons who are disabled, including 8,700 persons in families, and 5,600 persons who are chronically homeless.

Locally, the 2011 funding competition resulted in a $547,927 award to the Homeless Services Network for two new permanent supportive housing projects.
