The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded more than $2.3 million in funds to Clark County and Vancouver for Continuum of Care programs, which are efforts by local governments and nonprofits to house people experiencing homelessness and keep them housed long term.

Programs in Washington received a combined total of $110,731,811.

In Clark County, much of the funding will go toward HMIS systems, which track trends in homelessness and shows service providers where resources are needed. The nonprofits Share and Impact NW will both receive funding for permanent supportive housing.

“Now, more than ever, we are doing all we can to get people off the street and into permanent homes with access to services. That is why we are making sure the service providers on the frontlines of this crisis have the resources they need,” HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge said in a news release.
