CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia is receiving $6.7 million in federal funds for projects aimed at helping the homeless.

The funding is from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development under its Continuum of Care Program. It is intended to promote community commitment to the goal of ending homelessness by providing funding to improve self-sufficiency among individuals and families that are homeless.

The funding is headed to agencies and shelters to provide housing for those who lack a roof over their head.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin announced the funding on Monday.
