Lincoln Receives Homeless Grant

Some people in need here in Lincoln got a big Christmas present a day late. Five agencies serving the homeless received 1 and a half million dollars in federal funding.

Even though our economy is showing signs of a rebound, the number of homeless is growing. Now this grant will go toward all kinds of services to keep them off the streets and contributing to the community.

Housing and Urban Development is giving a federal grant to help people get back on their feet. Saint Monica's is just one of the five agencies to share the grant. The money will help provide services like job training and housing. Now it's up to all of the agencies to work together as a team.
