HUD Secretary Ben Carson has announced approximately $2 billion in Continuum of Care grants to thousands of local homeless assistance programs nationwide. The grants, one of the first major moves by HUD after the reopening of the government, is a huge relief for local providers, many of whom were on the verge of running out of funds to keep their shelters and intervention programs operating. The funding, which is drawn out of FY 2018 appropriations, will help the programs to continue operating in the event of a future shutdown, and provide more certainty for the Continuum of Care program going forward. HUD announced awards to grantees in each of the 50 states as well as providers in Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam and the US Virgin Islands.
