A federal agency has awarded a different kind of financial stimulus than you are used to hearing about lately, granting more than $11 million to the County of Orange in homeless assistance funding.

Part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care Super Notice of Funding Availability grant competition, the annual funding is managed by OC Community Services as the lead agency, but grants are dispersed directly to several other organizations trying to break the cycle of homelessness.
