SALT LAKE CITY — On April 26, the Utah Homeless Council awarded 45 nonprofit organizations in Utah $24 million to provide homeless resources statewide.
A release from the Utah Department of Workforce Services said providers will use the funding to supply various homeless resources.
These resources include emergency shelter, transitional housing, homeless prevention, permanent supportive housing, and rapid rehousing.
Also, the release said 99 projects received funding. This included 26 projects receiving funding for the first time.
“Each Local Homeless Council saw an increase in funding, which will make a positive impact statewide,” said Wayne Niederhauser, State of Utah Homeless Coordinator.
The funding comes from the Federal Emergency Solutions Grant, Federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Homeless to Housing, Pamela Atkinson Homeless Trust Fund, and Homeless Services Dedicated Funding.
“We appreciate the time and effort of applicants, staff, and the Utah Homeless Network steering committee,” said Niederhauser.
