CITY'S FEDERAL FUNDING WILL ADDRESS INCREASED NEED FOR SHELTER

May 19, 2020 – Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry announced today that the City of Fort Wayne is putting federal funding to work providing shelter for some of the community’s most vulnerable residents.

As part of the recent CARES Act, the City will receive approximately $1.7 million in emergency funding from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). In the first phase of investment, the City will help address the immediate need for shelter for people experiencing homelessness or for those who need to quarantine but cannot safely do so in their own home.
