Funds Available For Groups Addressing Homelessness

Proposals for federal funding are due this week for organizations that work to end homelessness in Indianapolis.

The federal funding is for partners that lead programs to address and prevent homelessness. Indianapolis’ efforts are led by the Indy Continuum of Care that administers grants to numerous groups every year. The continuum consists of more than 60 partners.

The city receives money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to support organizations doing work around rapid rehousing, supportive services and permanent housing solutions. This past year Indianapolis received millions in added federal funding to assist people experiencing homelessness during the pandemic.

The Continuum of Care administers the grants and will prioritize groups with strong housing first programs and those with proven success.
