New funding for Delaware’s collaborative initiative to boost homeless services

From Philly and the Pa. suburbs to South Jersey and Delaware, what would you like WHYY News to cover? Let us know!

This year, the fruits of a partnership between the Delaware State Housing Authority and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh resulted in a combined grant totalling more than $1 million, aimed to enhance services for the state’s unhoused population.

The two groups established their collaborative effort in 2018, in an initiative called the Home4Good program. It stands as a dedicated effort to combat homelessness. By distributing funds to organizations within the existing homeless provider network, the collaboration plays a vital role in assisting individuals with housing retention, finding homes, providing crucial support services and addressing unmet needs.

“We’re honored to be a part of this initiative and proud to support the organizations working to address homelessness through a multitude of different approaches,” said DSHA director Eugene Young. “From rapid re-housing to innovation, each program plays a valuable role in ensuring Delawareans have access to housing opportunities and support services.”

Within that million dollar grant, DSHA provided $575,000, while $500,000 came from FHLBank Pittsburgh.
