City Approves Plan To Help Homeless

No more homeless people on Lubbock streets in 2015. That's the goal the City of Lubbock is working toward.

Thursday, the Lubbock City Council approved a ten year plan to end chronic homelessness. Those are people who cannot hold jobs due to a disabling condition. Community Development Director Nancy Haney says Lubbock has less than 20 people who fit that description. Federal grant money would go to facilities, like the Salvation Army, who help the homeless.

"Our plan is saying let's help them do a better job. Let's help them find other financial resources, let's do anything in the city as far as city rpocesses like permits and fees," said Haney.

The city still needs apply for the grant money.
