HUD announced on December 20, 2011, the renewal awards from the 2011 Continuum of Care competition. Overall almost $1.47 billion was approved. This is the third year in a row that HUD quickly provided renewal grants to local programs to prevent any interruption in federal assistance. The funding is $62 million more than last year, the most homeless assistance ever awarded by HUD.
HUD will announce funding to new projects later this year.
