Temporary Suspension On Homeless Program
GAINESVILLE - The Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry are not receiving or processing any more move-in assistance applications for homeless clients until January, latest February. Jack Donovan, The director of this non profit tells me they have a backlog as two other projects are keeping them busy in the meantime.
The county provided ACCHH a grant of $25,000 to provide the homeless community with services. move-in assistance is one of them. it helps homeless people pay their first month's rent and deposit as long as they have an adequate income that will sustain them past the first month. Before that program resumes ACCHH needs to work on some Housing and Urban Development requirements.
Donovan said, "We've pretty much addressed a good chunk of that backlog but we have two really big projects coming up that all of our partner agencies rely on for a funding stream and for information going into the future.
One of the projects is submitting the applications for HUD grants and the other is a housing inventory count along with an annual point-in-time survey both which will update the numbers of homeless people and available housing in the region.
The two are very time consuming projects, Donovan tells me. Tune in tonight at 11pm, as I let you know what the people being affected, those who are homeless think.
