$1,379,024 in Grants for 18 Projects in Nine CoC’s
On May 2, 2013, U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan announced a second round of grants for more than 500 local homeless housing and service programs across the U.S, provided through HUD’s Continuum of Care Program.
This year, HUD challenged local communities to reexamine their response to homelessness and give greater weight to proven strategies, from providing ‘rapid re-housing’ for homeless families to permanent supportive housing for those experiencing chronic homelessness.
The $72 million in grants announced today support a wide range of programs including street outreach, client assessment, and direct housing assistance. In March, HUD awarded more than $1.5 billion in a first round of grant funding to renew support for more than 7,000 other local programs. HUD will make a third round of funding to support selected new projects later this year.
NJ received $1,379,024 in grants for 18 projects in nine CoC’s. This brings the total renewal award amount to $25,522,943. In the 2011 competition, NJ received a total of $25,037,712 in renewals.
