WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is giving D.C. millions to help homeless families, and many surrounding suburbs also are receiving funding.

D.C. has received $7.4 million in federal stimulus money to assist homeless families, as well as those faced with eviction or having trouble paying bills because of a drop in income.

Fairfax County was given about $2 million; Prince William and Arlington counties each received $700,000. Prince George’s County received about $3 million in funding.

Elsewhere in Maryland, Baltimore received almost $10 million and Anne Arundel County, $800,000.

No payments will go directly to the person in need. Instead, they will be given to third parties, such as landlords.

The funding is part of $1.2 billion in grants nationwide.
