HUD Announces $2.8 Billion for Homeless Services

 Aims to boost housing supply and lower housing cost

The Department of Housing and Urban Development announced last week that it will be distributing $2.8 billion to fund homeless services for the 2022 Fiscal Year. The money will be made available through the department’s Continuum of Care Program, which funds over 7,000 homeless service projects annually. Homeless services will be able to apply for funding from now until September 30, and this year Native American nations are now able to apply.

“Every person deserves to live with dignity and security in safe, stable, and affordable home,” said HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge. “Coupled with the historic resources in President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, the Continuum of Care Program grants made available by HUD today will help more Americans experiencing homelessness move into homes and access critical supportive services like health care, education, and job training.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Fudge as she oversees the funding of the homeless projects.
  • For HUD officials as they implement programs designed to reduce or prevent homelessness.
  • For recipient agencies and organizations to utilize the funding as effectively and beneficially as possible.
