3e Restoration, Inc. is excited to announce the awarding of the Governor's Homeless Reduction Grant.
The Homeless Reduction Grant program through the Virginia Housing Trust Fund is designed to reduce homelessness within Virginia. The program provides assistance to projects that address homelessness needs in the Commonwealth and supports the state housing policy.
Tuesday, Governor McAuliff announced that nearly $1.8 million was requested from 22 applicants for the program and that $958,600 has been awarded to twelve recipients. The applicants categories were scored with a maximum award of $100,000. 3e Restoration, Inc was awarded the grant's maximum amount, based on the Department of Housing and Community Development's (DHCD) overall scoring process.
According to the grant guidelines, the award will be used to provide stabilization services through a full-time housing-based care manager and rental assistance for the most vulnerable homeless friends in need living on the street or in emergency shelters. The care manager will work alongside our 3e ministry partners to provide a care management system of support and service coordination.
On behalf of our board members and staff, I would like to thank the Governor, DHCD, the Greater Virginia Peninsula Homeless Consortium, and our local government agencies, nonprofits, and faith partners who supported 3e and this grant award.
Together, we can break the cycle of homelessness and extreme poverty through gracious hospitality and systemic change one friend or family at a time.
