Wyoming Homeless Programs Get $292K in Federal Funding

Wyoming Homeless Programs Get $292K in Federal Funding”

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

Homelessness has risen this winter, with more people being listed without a permanent address.

New federal funding is heading to New Jersey to help support efforts to put an end to homelessness in the state.

California received the largest share of any state, with almost $382.6 million for 900 programs.

Los Angeles County's 55,188 number of homeless people in 2017 was behind only New York City's 76,501, according to the 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress by HUD. Family homelessness increased by 4 percent. They will report these one-night "point-in-time counts" later in the year to establish HUD's 2018 national homeless estimate. Meanwhile, the report found, homelessness among families with children declined 5.4 percent nationwide.

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.

HUD's Continuum of Care grants totaled $2.01 billion for the 2017-18 fiscal year, dispersed to localities throughout the country, as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

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.

According to HUD's statistics, last year, there were nearly 554,000 homeless Americans, an increase of.7 percent from last year with much of that increase taking place in California.

HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
