Housing And Jobs For The Homeless
HUD and the Department of Labor recently announced an unprecented partnership to provide jobs and housing to chronically homeless individuals. The $13.5 million dollars will be offered to local employment centers and housing providers "to help chronically homeless persons become less dependent and more self-sufficient." The Department of Labor portion of each grant is designed to "increase and improve employment opportunities for persons with disabilities who are chronically homeless." HUD, meanwhile, will provide approximately $2-3 million in grants to create permanent housing opportunities for the target population.
