TheContinuum of Care grants "will provide critically needed support to 5,800 local programs on the front lines of serving individuals and families experiencing homelessness," according to a HUD press release.

The weekend's announcement only covered grant funding awarded as renewal funding for previously funded local programs. HUD promises to announce more funding for new programs at a later date.

The announcement comes just a month after HUD released its "2018 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) to Congress," reporting increasing homelessness around the country.
