CINCINNATI (AP) - Nonprofit agencies that help the homeless will share more than $15 million to support services and housing for people living on the streets and in emergency shelters in the Cincinnati area.

The Strategies to End Homelessness organization that leads a coordinated system of care for the homeless says 16 local agencies in Cincinnati and Hamilton County will share the $15.4 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The grant was announced this week. The money will help support transitional and permanent supportive housing, rapid re-housing, street outreach and other services for persons coming off the streets and exiting emergency shelters.

Strategies to End Homelessness coordinates a centralized emergency shelter hotline, homelessness prevention, street outreach, emergency shelter and housing solutions toward the goal of ending homelessness.
