"These local programs are providing vital services to some of our most vulnerable", HUD Secretary Ben Carson said in a conference call with reporters on Thursday. However, homelessness among families dropped 5.4 percent. "We know how to end homelessness and it starts with embracing a housing- first approach that relies upon proven strategies that offer permanent housing solutions to those who may otherwise be living in our shelters and on our streets".

The money awarded to Colorado, part of $2 billion in Continuum of Care grants given out nationwide to combat homelessness, will be directed at organizations that provide housing and support services to individuals and families lacking a home.

The aggregate sum awarded to entities within California was $382,566,777 - the largest amount of any state.
