Brevard County seeking input on tackling homelessness with federal grant
BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Brevard County now has millions of dollars to tackle homelessness and wants public input on where the money should go.
The county recently received over $4 million in HOME Investment Partnerships American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) funding to help reduce homelessness and increase housing stability.
The funding must primarily benefit qualifying individuals who are experiencing homelessness; individuals at risk of homelessness; persons fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking; and other populations where providing supportive services or assistance would prevent homelessness or would serve those at greatest risk of housing instability.
A public comment period is now open until March 20. You can read more about the current plans the county has and leave a comment for the county by clicking HERE.
