Bond Announces More Than $23 Million in Federal Funds for Missouri Homeless Programs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – December 24, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senator Kit Bond today announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will release more than $23 million in federal grant funds to local Missouri homeless assistance programs.

“While significant progress has been made on addressing the tragedy of homelessness, the economic downturn and housing foreclosure crisis have forced more and more families with children on to the streets seeking help. Combined with the generosity of volunteers and private donations, these critical funds provide hope to our most vulnerable citizens that they will be able to overcome the harsh realities of homelessness during this holiday season,” Bond said. “I am proud to announce these funds and to be a long-time supporter of this homeless grant program because I know the funds are going to programs and providers across Missouri that have a proven track record of ending and preventing successfully the tragedy of homelessness.”

HUD issued the $23,158,731 in federal grant funds to Missouri homeless programs through its Continuum of Care programs. According to HUD officials, this is the first time HUD has provided renewal grants to local programs to prevent any interruption in federal assistance. HUD also will announce new project funds in 2010. HUD’s Continuum of Care Grants program provides permanent and transition housing to homeless persons, such as those who are disabled, veterans, and families with children. These grants also fund supportive services such as job training, health care, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment and child care. HUD awarded each of the local Missouri organizations below through a competitive process.

Bond is a long-time leader in the fight to end homelessness and as ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee for Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, he has secured critical funds for the government’s primary homeless and affordable housing programs.
