OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded a little over $8.6 million to support 41 local homeless assistance programs across Nebraska.

"At this time of year, thousands of local homeless assistance providers receive federal funding to operate and maintain stable housing for those living in our shelter system and on our streets," HUD Secretary Ben Carson said. "Renewing these grants will come as a huge relief to these providers, and it will allow them to continue their work to house and serve our most vulnerable neighbors."
