Washington, DC – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson announced that the City of Dallas has been awarded a Continuum of Care Grant in the amount of $ 287,443 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“I am pleased to announce that the City of Dallas will be receiving $287,443 in funding to support our Texans experiencing homelessness,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “This funding will assist our local government offices in their dedicated efforts to address housing insecurity in our communities. I am proud to support this federal funding, and I know the City of Dallas will put it to good use.
The Continuum of Care Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families, and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.
