Thursday Ben Carson the head of the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development announced that Florida was earmarked for $83.2 million to help house the states ever-growing homeless population.

The HUD funding announced on January 11 is part of a record $2 billion being awarded to more than 7,300 local housing and service programs nationwide. "HUD will continue to support these evidence-based efforts to further the goal of eliminating homelessness both locally and nationally".

Matthew Doherty, Executive Director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, said, "Continuums of Care are critical leaders in the work to end homelessness nationwide".

HUD annually provides one to two rounds of funding to end homelessness through the CoC program, called the Emergency Solutions Grant and the HUD CoC competitions.

Last month, HUD reported homelessness crept up in the US, especially among individuals experiencing long-term chronic homelessness. In addition, homelessness among families with children declined 14.2 percent across the state since 2016.
