Programs to help the homeless around the state are getting a big boost from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Governor Jim Douglas announced over $2.5 million in funding yesterday.

The money will be used to support homelessness programs and other social service agencies that work to meet unique housing needs in their communities.

Vermont also received a nearly $400,000 in Emergency Shelter Grant funds to support services like job training, health care, drug and alcohol abuse and homelessness prevention programs.
