The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced on Thursday that it will award $22.8 million to Dallas programs working to end homelessness.
The money will be available to Dallas’ Continuum of Care (CoC) program, which includes the City of Dallas and local nonprofits that provide services to homeless people led by an agency called Housing Forward. The funding was awarded through what is called the CoC Program Competition, where local groups across the country form a CoC and submit proposals for federal funds.
The funds are intended to help rehouse homeless people quickly by promoting collaboration between nonprofits and local governments. HUD estimates that nearly 400 communities apply for funding each year and that about 7,000 homeless service projects are funded every year through the CoC program.
