Federal Funding to End Homelessness

NJCounts Successful in Hudson CountyThe Jersey Journal reports that Hudson County, one of the counties delayed by the snowstorm a few weeks ago, held its #NJCounts event on February 4, 2015.

The County Continuum of Care viewed the new HUD awards as a key to their efforts to end homelessness.

“’Everybody came together to make this work. I’m proud of the work of the shelters, as well as the volunteers.’”

Said Carol Sainthilaire, program director for housing assistance for the Hudson County Division of Housing and Community Development.

Also of note is the $5.3 million in federal funding that Hudson County received from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) at the end of January.

“The grant is $1 million more than last year, thanks to a 2-year contract with Collaborative Support Programs of New Jersey, which has agreed to house and support 27 chronically homeless people in Hudson County.

They’re a great new addition to our continuum of care.”

Said Sainthilaire.
