Twenty local agencies that help open doors for people without homes or those at risk of becoming homeless will receive an infusion of $5.8 million to address the challenges made even more crucial during these tough times. That news came on September 2, 2009 from United Way of Central Indiana’s (UWCI) headquarters where Mayor Greg Ballard joined UWCI’s President and CEO Ellen K. Annala to announce grant recipients.

The total funding includes $3.5 million from the city and $2.3 million from the state through the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program under Title XII of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. These funds, issued by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, will help an estimated 2,044 households, according to United Way. These funds will begin to be distributed on October 1, 2009.
