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.
The MS Balance of State has prepared a Statewide Homeless Resource Directory to assist agencies and individuals in the search for resources on the behalf of the homeless and impoverished community of Mississippi. The Directory is available for online viewing OR PDF Download.
