A federal grant worth more than $338,000 will help Texarkana, Texas, help the homeless.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded the funds as part of its Continuum of Care Program.
The highly competitive grant is open annually to collaborative partnerships that successfully address homelessness, according to a city news release.
The city applied for Continuum of Care funding in partnership with the Texarkana Homeless Coalition, a network of community-based service agencies.
The grant provides resources to prevent homelessness and to rehouse and stabilize homeless citizens in the community.
