(KWTX) Central Texas will receive a share of nearly $2 billion in grants to homeless assistance programs, the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Friday.
"Today we make another critical investment to those persons and families living in our shelters and on our streets," HUD Secretary Ben Carson said.
"These new programs will join those already on the front lines in their communities working to end homelessness."
More than $97.2 million of the total goes to support homeless programs in Texas.
Waco-McLennan County programs will receive just more than $1 million.
Killeen programs will receive almost $430,000.
“Combined with new grants, this funding represents a record investment to support state and local efforts across the nation to reduce and end homelessness,” the Department of Housing and Urban Development said in a press release Friday.
