A list of the groups in Florida helping the homeless and getting Continuum of Care grants from HUD can be found here.

"HUD stands with our local partners who are working each and every day to house and serve our most vulnerable neighbors", Carson said on Thursday.

The extra grant will help the San Francisco government expand programs to provide housing for the homeless sleeping on the streets.

California received the largest share of any state, with almost $382.6 million for 900 programs.

The HUD's Continuum of Care grants are meant to move the homeless off the streets and into transitional or permanent housing.

The awards consider the cost of funding current programs, how well projects perform and housing costs. "Rapid rehousing ensures that homelessness is a brief, rare and non-recurring event for individuals and families".

The HUD findings were similar to the results of the 2017 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count released in June by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, which put the county's homeless total at 57,794 - an increase of 23 percent over the previous count. On the other hand, the report said, veteran homelessness decreased 4.1 percent and chronic homelessness decreased by 35.9 percent.

Last month, HUD reported that homelessness crept up in the United States, with an annual homeless assessment report showing 553,742 people without a home in 2017.

HUD estimates there were 553,742 persons experiencing homelessness on a single night nationally in 2017, and increase of.7 percent since past year.

In counts conducted in early 2017, the West Coast spike was so high that it raised the overall homelessness figure for the first time since 2010, to almost 554,000 people. These Continuums of Care will report these one-night "point-in-time counts" later in the year and will form the basis of HUD's 2018 national homeless estimate.
