R.I. to get $4.8m to fight homelessness


Dozens of Rhode Island organizations will share nearly $4.8 million in federal funds to help reduce homelessness. US Senator Jack Reed announced the funding Monday at an awards luncheon of the Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless. The federal Continuum of Care grants will go to 43 housing organizations in the state that provide services for homeless veterans, the mentally ill, families, and individuals. The money will go for permanent and transitional housing assistance, as well as services like job training, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, and child care.
