WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus and representative for Downtown Los Angeles, announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded over $39 million in federal grants to local homeless programs that serve the 34th Congressional District.
HUD collectively awarded over $84 million in “Continuum of Care” grants to a variety of organizations providing homeless housing and service programs in the City and County of Los Angeles.
“As last year’s homeless count showed, Angelenos experiencing homelessness remains a harsh reality for Los Angeles,” said Congressman Becerra. “We need this latest round of $39 million in federal funding for our homeless programs in Los Angeles more than ever. When we still see the most vulnerable in our city – veterans, women, and families – without the dignity that comes with a place to live, it’s up to all of us to step up to the plate. I will continue fighting to ensure that our region gets its fair share for our local homeless programs and services.”
