Trump administration announces $2B to help the homeless

Trump administration announces $2B to help the homeless

San Diego County will receive more than $20 million from the federal government to reduce homelessness, U.S. Housing and Urban Development announced Thursday.

Carson said that the money being sent to Florida was part of almost $2 billion being spent on the homeless nationwide.

The continuum of care grants provided will give support to individuals and families across the state.




HUD officials won't return the forfeited money to Syracuse, but on Thursday the federal agency said it approved a new $680,000 grant to continue the Shelter Plus Care program this year. "The grant program goes to the heart of our mission and supports the goal of ending and preventing homelessness as we know it". "Progress is being made but we must remain resolute in our mutual commitment to more innovatively and effectively address homelessness through a housing-first approach that is evidence based".

Last month, HUD reported homelessness crept up in the USA, especially among individuals experiencing long-term chronic homelessness. Meanwhile, the report found, homelessness among families with children declined 5.4 percent nationwide. The number of families with children experiencing homelessness declined 23 percent since 2016 and 60 percent since 2010. In addition, Veteran homelessness increased 27 persons to 583 or 4.8 percent since January 2016, demonstrating the need to continue providing assistance to this vulnerable population.

In Western New York, HUD estimated there were 1,042 people experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2017, a 3 percent increase since 2016. In addition to coordinating funding for area homeless programs, they will count all local homeless people in a single night at a later point in the year.
