Housing and Urban Development grants meant to reduce homelessness, it was announced Thursday. McHenry County received around a million dollars, while DeKalb and DeKalb County received a total of almost 600,000.
California topped the list of state and local programs being funded by the grants, with 900 programs being funded for a total of $382,566,777.
The funding includes $2.5 million worth of housing initiatives on Treasure Island, and $6 million for supportive housing in four rehabilitated residential hotels.
"HUD stands with our local partners, who are working each and every day to house and serve our most vulnerable neighbors", said HUD Secretary Ben Carson.
Jeff Kositsky, director of the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, said the infusion of money made him "very pleased" and that the vast majority of the new cash will go toward "permanent supportive housing and rapid rehousing".

"When communities marshal these-and other local, state, private, and philanthropic resources-behind the strongest housing-first practices, we see important progress in our collective goal to end homelessness in America".
