Monday at 6:30 p.m., Springfield City Council is slated to vote on a 6 step plan to fight homelessness using a grant from the HOME Allocation Rescue Plan.
A special council was formed of community partners to discuss how to best use the funds. A 6 step plan was formed that outlined how to help someone go from homelessness to home ownership.
If the plan is approved by city council, it’s next stop is the Department of Housing and Urban Development. HUD would then be responsible for distributing the funds from there to be used by non-profits and charities in accordance with the guidelines. The funds, according to the plan, must be used by 2026.
