El Dorado County Health and Human Services today announced that it is the largest amount ever awarded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to the Continuum of Care (CoC).

Nationwide, the grants totaled more than $2 billion.

Homelessness has risen this winter, with more people being listed without a permanent address.

The Continuum of Care grants announced on January 11 provide critically needed housing and support services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness across the state.

There are "proven" ways to do that, Carson said, one of which is known as "housing first, and it really means, instead of setting up a bunch of requirements before we help people, we get them off the streets". "HUD will continue to support these evidence-based efforts to further the goal of eliminating homelessness both locally and nationally".

Jio effect: Airtel Rs

Ben Carson announced the money was coming through Continuum of Care grants. Local Massachusetts communities also report the number of persons experiencing long-term chronic homelessness decreased.

According to HUD, there were 553,742 homeless people across the country on a single night in 2017, which was up by less than 1 percent from the previous year.

According to a HUD report, homelessness declined in MA in 2017 compared to 2016. Family homelessness increased by 4 percent.

Across the nation, local homelessness planning agencies, "Continuums of Care", will organize volunteers to help count the number of those located in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs and living unsheltered on the streets. HUD estimates there were 17,565 persons experiencing homelessness in MA on a single night in 2017, a decrease of 10.4 percent since the prior year.
