CHICAGO — The U.S. Secretary for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) came to Chicago Thursday to announce $300 million dollars in grants to combat homelessness across the country.

Secretary Marcia Fudge appeared alongside Mayor Lori Lightfoot to officially award $60 million to the City of Chicago and its community partner All Chicago meant to help families and individuals get off the streets and into homes. Of the 46 communities receiving a piece of the total $300 million, Chicago was the largest recipient.

Fudge and Lightfoot shared their remarks at Brainerd Park Apartments, a residential complex which provides housing for low-income families including those who are considered homeless.

According to the apartment’s website, the 36-unit structure was created by Chicago-based non-profits Christian Community Health Center and Full Circle Communities.

The complex first opened in September of 2018 and targets renters earning between 30% and 60% of the area median income, with eight units specifically for renters defined as homeless by the Federal Home Loan Bank.
