Housing facilities across West Virginia will receive a total of $6,749,574 under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) Program for projects with the goal of ending homelessness. The funding was announced Monday by U.S. Senator Joe Manchin's office.  “In West Virginia, we understand the importance of helping those who have fallen on hard times,” Senator Manchin said in a news release. 

 “These funds will help care for those who are struggling, including seniors, children and veterans, and it will ensure they have a roof over their heads and access to the support they need to get back on their feet. Because of this funding, West Virginians in need will also have the opportunity to develop specific skillsets to help them return to the workforce, provide for themselves and their families, and contribute to our communities.” 

According to a news release issued Monday, the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote communitywide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness by providing funding to organizations and State and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families and improve self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
