Federal government awards San Diego $20 million for the homeless

Four dozen programs run by nonprofits and government agencies in San Diego County were awarded more than $20 million in U.S. Housing and Urban Development grants meant to reduce homelessness, it was announced this week.

This year, at the national level, HUD plans to send $2 billion in the grants to more than 7,300 programs helping the homeless.

The largest share of those funds, more than $380 million, went to California for 900 programs, almost half of which went to the Southern California area.

This year, HUD is working with state and local governments, nonprofits and other groups to showcase more effective solutions to homelessness.

Officials are awaiting HUD approval for the change in how the grant is managed, said Melissa Marrone, director of the Housing and Homeless Coalition of Central New York.

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

The Syracuse Housing Authority had participated in Shelter Plus Care since the program began in 1994, receiving grants totaling about $2.6 million a year at its peak.

Last month, HUD reported homelessness crept up in the US, especially among individuals experiencing long-term chronic homelessness. The study found 553,742 persons experienced homelessness on a single night in 2017, an increase of.7 percent since past year. Meanwhile, the report found, homelessness among families with children declined 5.4 percent nationwide.

In Florida, there were nearly 32,200 people who experienced homelessness previous year, a decline of 4 percent.

Across the nation, local homelessness planning agencies called "Continuums of Care" will organize volunteers to help count the number of persons located in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs and living unsheltered on the streets. Family homelessness increased by 4 percent.
