HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The state of Connecticut is receiving more than $6.5 million in federal grant funds to continue efforts to end youth homelessness.

Connecticut competed with other states to receive the funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s new Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project. The money is being distributed to various crisis housing and other housing assistance programs benefiting young adults and children.

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says Connecticut is on track to end youth homelessness by 2020. He says the state has already “effectively ended veteran homelessness.”

About $4 million of the federal funding will benefit various “repaid rehousing programs,” a combination of housing stabilization services and short-term rental assistance,” that will serve approximately 114 young adults at a point-in-time who are homeless or fleeing domestic violence.
