WASHINGTON, D.C. – February 2, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced that the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded San Francisco $25.6 million in HUD’s Continuum of Care grants to fund 60 San Francisco-based organizations and a variety of housing and services including transitional and permanent supportive housing, rapid re-housing, street outreach, client assessment, and other services for families, victims of domestic violence, youth, and homeless veterans.
“These HUD grants help us serve the most vulnerable in our City,” said Mayor Lee. “By linking those who are homeless, including veterans and families, to housing, employment, and services, we are making sure that everyone can share in the success of our City. We know we are moving in the right direction, by creating affordable and service-intensive permanent housing. With our strong economic foundation, we have a special opportunity to change this City for the better and continue to make progress in ending chronic homelessness.”
