Texas Gets Nearly $10.5M In HUD Homeless Grants

FORT WORTH (AP) — More than a dozen Texas communities will share nearly $10.5 million in federal grants to support programs for the homeless.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the funds Tuesday afternoon.

The HUD money goes to projects in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, El Paso, Galveston, Georgetown, Houston, Killeen, Longview, Mount Pleasant, Richmond, San Antonio, Sherman, Waco and Wichita Falls.

HUD authorities say the money is meant to help provide emergency shelter, transitional housing and permanent support for individuals and families.

The Texas funds are part of about $201 million in grants awarded nationwide.
