BUSH ADMINISTRATION AWARDS $21 MILLION TO COMBAT HOMELESSNESS IN VIRGINIA
Nearly $1.4 billion awarded nationwide to support a record number of Local Homeless Programs Nationwide

WASHINGTON - More than 60 non-profits, local governments and housing authorities in Virginia have been awarded
a total of $20,995,829 in funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide critically needed emergency shelter, transitional housing and permanent support for the homeless across the Commonwealth.

Today HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson announced the competitive awarded a total of $1.4 billion nationwide to
more than 5,300 local homeless programs throughout the nation will receive nearly $1.4 billion in fiscal year 2006
funds that are expected to serve more than 150,000 homeless individuals and families.

HUD awarded $18.3 million to Continuums of Care � comprised of non-profits and local governments � based in Alexandria, Charlottesville, Chesapeake, Danville, Fredericksburg, Harrisonburg, Newport News, Norfolk, Petersburg, Portsmouth, Richmond, Roanoke, Virginia Beach, the northern Shenandoah Valley and Arlington, Fairfax and Prince Williams counties. Another $2.6 million in Emergency Shelter Grants went to governments in Norfolk, Richmond, Roanoke and Virginia Beach, Fairfax and Prince Williams counties and the State of Virginia.

"These grants will support thousands of local programs that are on the front lines of helping those who might otherwise be living on our streets," said Secretary Jackson. "Whether it's a single man living with a mental illness
or a family struggling to give their children a roof over their heads, this funding is quite literally saving lives."

Since 2001, HUD has awarded approximately $9 billion in funding to state and local communities to support the housing and service needs of homeless persons and families. Next Year, President Bush is proposing a record level
of funding to house and serve homeless persons and families. The President's 2008 budget requests more than $1.6 billion through HUD's Continuum of Care and Emergency Shelter Grant programs.

Jackson added, "The homeless must not become invisible or marginalized. Our response tells us much about our humanity as a people and a nation. When our fellow citizens literally need shelter from the storm, or a meal, or counseling, or help to regain their footing in life, we must be there to respond."

HUD's Continuum of Care programs 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. More than $1.2 billion in 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. Half of all Continuum funding awarded today, nearly $618 million, will support new and existing programs that help
to pay rent and provide permanent housing for disabled homeless individuals and their families.

Emergency Shelter Grants provide funds for homeless shelters, assist in the operation of local shelters and fund related social service and homeless prevention programs. HUD is awarding $160 million in Emergency Shelter Grants that are allocated based on a formula to state and local governments 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.
