The Department of Housing and Urban Development(HUD) has announced that Grays Harbor County was awarded a grant of $184,000, renewable annually, to help provide new Permanent Supportive Housing services in the area.
Grays Harbor County Public Health and Social Services tells KXRO that these funds will be used “to further a plan to provide stable housing and supports for the most vulnerable homeless individuals”.
The funds come from HUD’s Continuum of Care program.
According to the local department, the County will use the grant to fund a contract with Coastal Community Action Program to provide affordable housing and intensive ongoing supportive services for up to 16 individuals who have been chronically homeless.
This program will begin in spring of 2019.
