The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently awarded more than $12 million in grant awards for organizations across Greater Rochester to continue the fight against homelessness.
Funding is provided through the Continuum of Care program, which supports local programs that prove the most effective in meeting the needs of those experiencing homelessness in the local community. HUD’s 2017 annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress found that the rate of homelessness increased nationally for the first time since 2010.
Local programs that will receive funding include Frederick Douglass Apartments, Transition Age Youth Rapid Rehousing Project, The Housing Council at PathStone, YWCA Family Rapid Re-Housing, Trillium Health Permanent Supportive Housing, Providence Veterans Permanent Housing Program and Volunteers of America of WNY’s Project ReDirect.
