The HUD's Continuum of Care grants are meant to move the homeless off the streets and into transitional or permanent housing.

The grants provide crucial housing and support services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness statewide. Those grants will be allocated separately from today's announced $2 billion in funding and are due to be announced sometime in mid-March.

In Florida, there were nearly 32,200 people who experienced homelessness a year ago, a decline of 4 percent.

An analysis from the liberal-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said all three proposals would result in fewer people receiving housing help from the federal government and warned that some of those who can't get help will end up homeless. The cities of Aurora and Elgin, as well as Kane County, received more than $1.7 million.

HUD-funded strategies have led to a 22 percent reduction in the homeless population in Western New York since 2010, according to Regional Administrator Lynne Patton. In addition, homelessness among families with children declined 14.2 percent across the state since 2016.

Last month, HUD reported homelessness crept up in the USA, especially among individuals experiencing long-term chronic homelessness.

Orange County's number of homeless also rose to 4,792 in 2017, up from 4,452 in 2015, according to the 2017 Point-in-Time Count & Survey.

HUD estimates there were 553,742 persons experiencing homelessness on a single night nationally in 2017, and increase of.7 percent since past year.

Ben Carson announced the money was coming through Continuum of Care grants.

San Francisco had a homeless population of about 7,500 in 2017, according to a Homeless Point-in-Time count survey, or a "homeless census" conducted by the city previous year.
