Federal government awards San Diego $20 million for the homeless

US city San Francisco to receive extra federal funds to combat homelessness

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.

Housing for homeless people in San Francisco got a boost Thursday when the federal government announced it is giving the city $9 million more than it did previous year as part of its annual funding for homeless programs around the nation. "It starts with embracing a housing-first approach that relies upon proven strategies that offer permanent housing solutions to those who may otherwise be living in our shelters and on our streets".

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

In counts conducted in early 2017, the West Coast spike was so high that it raised the overall homelessness figure for the first time since 2010, to almost 554,000 people.

California received the largest share of the grant money, $382.56 million. In addition, homelessness among families with children declined 14.2 percent across the state since 2016.

The sheriff's deputy wrote that an unspecified "reasonable, articulable suspicion was obtained that criminal activity was afoot". The sheriff's department says the Jiron's were also driving the same Toyota pickup involved in their previous bust.

The housing department estimates that the number of people experiencing long term, chronic homelessness, including veterans, has increased.

The agency reported that 553,742 people in the USA experienced at least one night of homelessness past year. "Rapid rehousing ensures that homelessness is a brief, rare and non-recurring event for individuals and families".

Across the nation, local homelessness planning agencies called "Continuums of Care" will organize volunteers to help count the number of persons located in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs and living unsheltered on the streets.

The total awards in the Continuum of Care program is the most ever, though only slightly above collective grants of more than $1.9 billion in the last few years. 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.
