HUD Awards $45.9 Million to New Jersey Homeless Programs

Ben Carson

On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded $59.6 million to organizations aiming to end homelessness in Washington, including $1.98 million for projects in Clark County.

This year, the program reallocated more than $90 million in renewal funding and is awarding $120 million in new projects, including critical investments in permanent supportive housing (PSH) and rapid re-housing (RRH).

Officials say the funding will help move the state one step closer to ultimately eliminating homelessness. HUD officials said Western New York received a 3 percent increase over the previous funding cycle, which will bring approximately $360,000 more to the area.

"Our local partners are to be commended for their commitment and ongoing efforts to address homelessness, said Denise Cleveland-Leggett, HUD Southeast Regional Administrator". The agency's 2017 annual report to Congress found that 553,742 people experienced homelessness on a single night during the year, an increase of 0.7 percent since 2016.

But others familiar with the program said the authority was not equipped to work with homeless people who also need support services beyond housing.

Across the country, HUD has launched "Continuums of Care" composed of volunteers trying to count the homeless population. Homelessness among families with children declined 5.4 percent nationwide since 2016, local communities report the number of persons experiencing long-term chronic homelessness and Veterans increased.

In New Jersey, HUD estimates there were 8,536 people were homeless on a single night in January 2017, representing an overall 4.0 percent decrease from 2016 and a 38 percent decrease since 2010.

National research shows that 75-93 percent of participants in these types of programs stay stably housed and avoid a return to homelessness.
