million has been awarded to help homeless housing and service
programs in Kentucky. U.S. Housing and Urban Development
announced the grants this week. A total of $1.8 billion was
awarded nationwide. The funds will help with services such as
street outreach, client assessment and direct housing
assistance. Funding will also help provide continued permanent
and transitional housing for homeless people and services such

substance abuse treatment and child care. The Louisville area is
receiving almost $9.2 million of the funding, the Lexington area
will receive more than $1.5 million and the rest of the state is
