Salt Lake City, Utah — A help is on the way for the approximately 3,500 Utahns currently sleeping on the streets each night.
Utah’s Office of Homeless Services just received nearly $13 million from the federal government.
The Utah Office of Homeless Services will hold a public forum on Friday, Feb. 18, needing public input on a draft funding allocation plan.
“To ensure the best decision-making for Utahns experiencing homelessness moving forward, we want input from the community as a whole,” said Tricia Davis, assistant director of the Office of Homeless Services. “We want to hear from as many Utah residents as possible.”
Those who are interested can also attend virtually. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. at the Metro Employment Center in downtown Salt Lake City at 720 S. 200 East.
After the allocation plan is approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, specific projects can receive funding.
