HUD awards $68 million to homeless programs in Chicago HUD awards $68 million to homeless programs in Chicago

The funding is part of roughly $2 billion being awarded to over 7,300 local housing and service programs nationwide.

Heartland Alliance and Thresholds, which both focus on connecting people to medical care and permanent housing, were among the recipients in Chicago.

According to a HUD media statement, "HUD's Continuum of Care grants provide critically needed support to local programs on the front lines of serving individuals and families experiencing homelessness".

The awards consider the cost of funding current programs, how well projects perform and housing costs.

California topped the list of state and local programs being funded by the grants, with 900 programs being funded for a total of $382,566,777.

According to a HUD report, homelessness declined in MA in 2017 compared to 2016.

Last month, HUD reported homelessness crept up in the US, especially among individuals experiencing long-term chronic homelessness. In addition, homelessness among families with children declined 14.2 percent across the state since 2016. They will report these one-night "point-in-time counts" later in the year to establish HUD's 2018 national homeless estimate. On the other hand, the report said, veteran homelessness decreased 4.1 percent and chronic homelessness decreased by 35.9 percent.

The programs consist of planning agencies known as "continuums of care".

San Francisco had a homeless population of about 7,500 in 2017, according to a Homeless Point-in-Time count survey, or a "homeless census" conducted by the city previous year.

In Florida, there were nearly 32,200 people who experienced homelessness a year ago, a decline of 4 percent.

HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
