OKLAHOMA CITY - U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan today announced that the Obama Administration is awarding $7,359,357 in grants to more than 39 homeless programs throughout Oklahoma. These grants offer homeless individuals and families a wide range of housing and support services, and nationally, nearly
$1.6 billion was awarded. A complete list of the Oklahoma grantee organizations and amounts of funding follows.

(Note to Oklahoma City and Tulsa reporters: In order to get the total grant amount for these cities, you must
add the Continuum of Care grant amount to the Emergency Shelter Grant amount. ESG grants are listed at the very end.)

"With the foreclosure and unemployment crisis looming, millions of families - both homeowners and renters - are in danger of losing their homes, so we must focus substantial resources to help those families find stable housing," said Donovan. "The grants being awarded today, along with the additional $1.5 billion that is contained in the American Recovery and Revitalization Act, will offer a critical lifeline to those persons and families who, after a foreclosure or job loss, might otherwise be faced with homelessness."

HUD's homeless funding is provided in two ways:

  • Continuum of Care Grants provide permanent and transitional housing to homeless persons. In addition, Continuum grants fund important services including job training, health care, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment and child care. Continuum of Care Grants are awarded competitively to local programs to meet the needs of their homeless clients. Continuum grants fund a wide variety of programs from street outreach and assessment programs to transitional and permanent housing for homeless persons and families.

    Continuums of Care are State and local planning agencies that coordinate their area's response to homelessness. They prioritize their area's needs and submit funding applications to HUD on behalf of the
    housing and service projects in their area.

  • Emergency Shelter Grants provide funds for the operation of local shelters and fund-related social service
    and homeless prevention programs. Emergency Shelter Grants are allocated to State and local governments, based on a formula, to create, improve and operate emergency shelters for homeless persons. These funds
    may also support essential services including job training, health care, drug/alcohol treatment, childcare and homelessness prevention activities. By helping to support emergency shelter, transitional housing and needed support services, Emergency Shelter Grants are designed to move homeless persons away from a life on the street toward permanent housing.
