Lackawanna, PA – U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded $3,897,139 in Continuum of Care (CoC) funds to local agencies and organizations based in Lackawanna County working to address homelessness.
"This type of funding will help many people in our own communities who find themselves in need of housing,” said Rep. Cartwright, a member of the Appropriations Committee. “By helping people access housing and supportive services, we are giving them a chance to move toward productive, rewarding lives. I congratulate these organizations for their great work and am proud to support the programs that make this grant funding possible.”
The CoC program is part of a strategic plan to solve homelessness for veterans, adults, families, youth, and children.
