The Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced that Grays Harbor County was awarded a grant of $134,897, renewable annually, to help provide new transitional housing services in the area for survivors of domestic violence.
Grays Harbor County Public Health and Social Services will use the funds to further a plan to provide stable housing and support for the most vulnerable homeless individuals.
The funds come from HUD’s Continuum of Care program.
The County will use the grant to expand a County-funded pilot project with Domestic Violence Center of Grays Harbor to provide transitional housing and intensive ongoing supportive services for an additional eight survivors and their families.
That program is set to begin in spring of 2020.
