CONGRESSMAN BECERRA ANNOUNCES $1.7 MILLION IN HUD GRANTS FOR HOMELESS PROGRAMS IN LOS ANGELES

LOS ANGELES – (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 $1.7 millionin federal grants to local homeless programs that serve the 34th Congressional District.

Overall, HUD awarded $15.8 million in Tier 2 Continuum of Care (CoC) grants to a variety of homeless housing and service programs in Los Angeles County.

“Every dollar we can secure to help homeless Angelenos is a win,” said Congressman Becerra. “As recent homelessness plans by the City of Los Angeles and County of Los Angeles show, tackling this issue will require significant long-term investments. The latest homeless count figures show that we’ve made important gains in reducing veteran and family homelessness – but we have much work to do and we can’t let up. At the federal level, I will keep working so that we remain committed to helping our fellow Angelenos get the housing and services they need to get off the streets.”
