HUD Announces $2.7 Billion for Homeless Services

Grants will go to organizations providing services and housing under the 2021 Continuum of Care Program.

The Continuum of Care Program is the largest source of federal grant funding made available to homeless services across the country. To help with the increase in homelessness brought on by the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has made $2.656 billion in grants through this program available. Indian Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing entities will also be eligible to apply for the grants.

“The safety of a stable home is essential during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge. “Coupled with the historic resources in the American Rescue Plan, the Continuum of Care Program grants made available through this announcement will provide communities with the resources needed to ensure that more Americans have the safety and stability of a home.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For HUD officials as they distribute the grants and for the recipients to use them effectively.
  • That Secretary Fudge would seek God’s wisdom as she heads her department.
  • For President Biden and his advisors as they seek solutions for homelessness.
