HUD Announces Additional Funding for Homeless Programs in Mississippi

Earlier today, Secretary Julián Castro announced $355 million to more than 1,200 local homeless housing and service programs across the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This funding includes $725,424 to support 7 local homeless housing and service programs in Mississippi. These Continuum of Care (CoC) grants support the Obama Administration’s efforts to end homelessness and build upon the $1.6 billion in funding HUD awarded through a first round of funding in March.
