Sacramento Steps Forward the public-private nonprofit that manages the funding of Sacramento's homeless programs has received more than $700,000 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for local housing programs for the homeless.
According to Sacramento Steps Forward officials, the HUD grant ensures continued operation of three programs for the duration of the fiscal year: a local crisis nursery program for homeless families; supportive housing; and information system support.
Another $14 million in HUD grants also helps support 27 city and county programs for the homeless. About 1,000 people in Sacramento are considered homeless.
