ND Lawmakers Debating on Reduced Funding for Homeless Shelters
The state Legislature has given $2 million and $1.5 million the past two years in one-time funding for the North Dakota Homeless Grant
BISMARCK, N.D. — Lawmakers are considering reducing funding for homeless shelters around North Dakota.
The state Legislature has given $2 million and $1.5 million the past two years in one-time funding for the North Dakota Homeless Grant.
This year, the grant will probably not exceed $300,000.
April Fairfield of the North Dakota Coalition for Homeless People says the cuts would affect vulnerable homeless people.
The funding discussion comes as police found a homeless man frozen to death in Grand Forks last week.
