State Provides Funding to Help Homeless Ohioans

More than $27.2 million will support shelters for the homeless and help the homeless find permanent housing. The Ohio Development Services Agency is providing grants to 82 local organizations to support homeless prevention, emergency shelters and transitional and supportive housing projects.

“We’re working with local communities to provide the resources homeless Ohioans need to get back on their feet,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency.

Grants from the Homeless Crisis Response Program will help 56 nonprofit and local government agencies operate emergency shelters and quickly move individuals from emergency shelters to permanent housing. More than 22,000 Ohioans will be assisted through the program. Funding for the program is from the Ohio Housing Trust Fund and the federal Emergency Solutions Grant program.

Grants from the Supportive Housing Program will help 48 nonprofit agencies transition homeless Ohioans to permanent housing or provide permanent supportive housing to homeless people with disabilities. Approximately 6,500 Ohioans will be assisted through the program. Funding for the program is from the Ohio Housing Trust Fund.
