Iowa homeless programs to receive $9 million in federal funds


Programs that assist homeless individuals and families in Des Moines and Polk County will receive $3.4 million in federal funds to boost their efforts, the Iowa Finance Authority said. The funds are provided via the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Continuum of Care (CoC) program, which supports local programs that serve individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Iowa has three CoCs: Des Moines/Polk County, Sioux City/Woodbury County and the Iowa Balance of State CoC, which covers the rest of the state with the exception of Council Bluffs, which is included in the Omaha CoC. The Iowa Finance Authority provides administrative support for the Iowa Council on Homelessness, which oversees the Balance of State CoC. For all three programs, HUD will provide a total of $9.1 million.
