LAS VEGAS (AP) — More than $6.5 million in federal money is headed to southern Nevada to help tackle homelessness.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development on Monday.

A $4.6 million Community Development Block Grant is aimed at developing housing and expanding economic opportunity for low- and moderate-income residents.

A $363,000 Emergency Solutions Grant is focused on engaging people who live on the streets and improving the number and quality of emergency shelters.

A $1.6 million HOME Grant is aimed at expanding affordable housing for low- and very low-income residents.

If the degenerates of the house passed the extension we wouldn't have all these people homeless this money should be helping everyone not just one state

Kramer, obviously a fan of Reid. I see you bash people all the tiem. I see the homeless in Reno/Sparks with no real place to go, that money should be divided between both ends of the state. nuff said.

just a perjorative comment, maybe lost wages has more homeless, or more likely, is more indifferent to them. I'm no fan of Reid, but flimsy excuse to bash him

Why is Northern Nevada not included in this grant, oh I forgot, Reid is from Southern NV, Northern Nevada does not exist for him.
