Homeless task force granted $8 million
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded a $7.94 million grant to the San Diego Regional Task Force on the Homeless (RTFH) to help identify homeless youth in San Diego and connect them to housing services.
“Youth are often hidden among San Diego’s homeless population, which makes it challenging to connect them with resources like education, health care, employment, and housing,” read a statement from Congressman Scott Peters, whose support letter was included in the grant proposal. “This grant will help the Regional Task Force expand their work to reach and serve this vulnerable population.”
San Diego was one of 11 communities awarded the grant, receiving the most money of all awardees.
