EC From DC E-Mail Blast: HUGE HELP FOR THE HOMELESS
Almost two million dollars is on its way to numerous organizations and municipalities in Missouri’s Fifth District to help the homeless. These dollars are critical for our area and I am honored to continue fighting for them. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded this money to our area as part of the Continuum of Care Program to fight homelessness.
Federal dollars are scarce and getting even more so, while the need continues to grow. These dollars will help ensure safe and available shelter, stability, and the opportunity for some of the vulnerable in our community to begin to turn their lives around.
I look forward to continuing to work with the outstanding recipient organizations (listed below) in the fight against homelessness.
