Substantial amount of stimulus money for county to prevent and ease homelessness is forthcoming

Federal stimulus money, totalling $4.7 million, is forthcoming to the county of Sacramento for the specific purpose "to prevent and ease homelessness, aimed at those who have recently become homeless," according to a Sacramento Bee report, today, "County set to deploy U.S. aid."

These new funds, approximately 12% of $40 million that was announced for the county under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, likely will be greatly helpful at relieving stress on the homeless community and homeless-aid services.

According to a federal government website, the Act is an "effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges."
