HUD Awards Michigan $73 Million to Fight Homelessness

The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development is giving Michigan $73 million to help end homelessness. $1.3 million of that money will go to Antrim, Grand Traverse, and Leelanau counties.

The Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency says it is using the money to subsidize houses.

Homes will be awarded to people in the community that have been displaced and don’t have the resources to live on their own.

The Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency believes this will help those struggling to get back on their feet.

The Goodwill Inn says they worked with the Northwest Michigan community in order to apply for these grants.

Also, the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development says Michigan has seen a 34% decrease in homelessness since 2010 and hopes to keep the momentum going.
