DETROIT (WXYZ) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced that the state of Michigan is getting more than $73 million in grants, including $25 million to Detroit, to help end homelessness.

HUD Secretary Ben Carson made the announcement on Wednesday, and the funds will go to help 274 programs in the state that help people experiencing homelessness.

"A safe, affordable place to call home is key when creating a path toward opportunity and self-sufficiency," Carson said in Columbus, where he made the funding announcement. "The grants awarded today help our partners on the ground to reduce homelessness in their communities and help our most vulnerable neighbors."

The Continuum of Care grant helps support several interventions designed at helping people who are homeless, especially those living in places that aren't meant for habitation, those in shelter programs, or those at risk of being homeless.

“Local agencies across Michigan have worked diligently to end homelessness resulting in nearly a -34.3.3% reduction in overall homelessness since 2010,” said HUD Midwest Regional Administrator Joseph P. Galvan. “We hope to keep the momentum going and are here to support agencies in their tireless efforts to end homelessness as we know it.”

“HUD has been a great partner in our community-wide efforts to better serve our homeless population and provide more pathways out of homelessness," Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said in a release. "I am deeply appreciative to Administrator Galvan and the HUD staff for this funding and confidence in our ability to put it to effective use.”
