HUD announces funds for homeless programs

The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded more than $109 million in grants Thursday to homeless programs across IL, and a fair amount of those funds were disbursed around northern IL.

This year, the program reallocated more than $90 million in renewal funding and is awarding $120 million in new projects, including critical investments in permanent supportive housing (PSH) and rapid re-housing (RRH).

CoC grants support nonprofits, as well as state and local governments in rehousing homeless individuals and families, and support self-sufficiency among homeless individuals and families.

California received roughly $382 million, the most of any state.

HUD-funded strategies have led to a 22 percent reduction in the homeless population in Western New York since 2010, according to Regional Administrator Lynne Patton.

Last month, HUD reported homelessness crept up in the US, especially among individuals experiencing long-term chronic homelessness.

In Florida, there were nearly 32,200 people who experienced homelessness a year ago, a decline of 4 percent. While homelessness among families with children declined 5.4 percent nationwide since 2016, local communities report long-term chronic homelessness increased.

In 2015, Mayor Marty Walsh launched an action plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness by 2018, and in October of a year ago, he specifically launched efforts to prevent and end youth homelessness in the city.

Across the nation, local homelessness planning agencies, "Continuums of Care", will organize volunteers to help count the number of those located in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs and living unsheltered on the streets. HUD estimates there were 17,565 persons experiencing homelessness in MA on a single night in 2017, a decrease of 10.4 percent since the prior year.
