New Hampshire To Receive $6.6M In Grants For Homeless

New Hampshire is getting more than $6.6 million in grants to support 68 homeless housing and service programs in the state.

The U.S. Housing and Urban Development grants cover street outreach, client assessment, and direct housing assistance.

The funding also will allow local providers to continue offering permanent and transitional housing to homeless people, as well as job training, health care, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment and child care.

Across New Hampshire, local homelessness planning agencies are organizing volunteers to help count the number of people located in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs and living unsheltered on the streets.

Such a count is scheduled for Wednesday.
