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.

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

The HUD's Continuum of Care grants are meant to move the homeless off the streets and into transitional or permanent housing.

"Local organizations that serve the homeless in New Jersey assist individuals and families by providing food, clothing, shelter, financial assistance and supportive services", said Lynne Patton, HUD Regional Administrator for NY and New Jersey.

This year, HUD indicated it is continuing to challenge state and local planners to support higher performing local programs that have proven most effective in meeting their local challenges, often shifting funds from existing projects to create new ones that will have a more substantial and lasting impact on reducing homelessness. Local Massachusetts communities also report the number of persons experiencing long-term chronic homelessness decreased. "The grant program goes to the heart of our mission and supports the goal of ending and preventing homelessness as we know it".




Under Trump and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, the federal government has largely maintained the approach to homelessness taken by former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

At least 553,742 people in the US experienced at least one night of homelessness a year ago, according to HUD. The number of families with children experiencing homelessness declined 23 percent since 2016 and 60 percent since 2010.

In Florida, there were nearly 32,200 people who experienced homelessness past year, a decline of 4 percent. On the other hand, the report said, veteran homelessness decreased 4.1 percent and chronic homelessness decreased by 35.9 percent.

In addition to helping keep local shelters open, the program allows organizations to continue to provide rental assistance, Carson said.

Across the country, homelessness has been on a downward trend for years, according to government counts.
