LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Fort Smith city leaders are set to consider a $17,000 funding cut for an area organization that helps the homeless.

The executive director of Next Step Homeless Services says the potential loss of city funding would hurt its mission, but that it would seek more money from community donors.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1BnINRs ) reports that city directors are scheduled June 2 to weigh cutting funding for the 13-year-old nonprofit.

City Administrator Ray Gosack says he hasn’t yet drafted a resolution for the meeting. But Gosack says that it would call for not providing homeless services that duplicate those at the planned Riverview Hope Campus.

The campus would have 75 beds, offer medical and mental health services, meals, adult education classes and laundry among other services.
