Three major programs are being recommended for funding to help the homeless in the Hastings-Quinte area.
This is the third year of a five-year federal funding program providing $118,000 for the homeless and the social services committee is recommending three agencies for this year’s funding.
Executive director Steve Gatward says the money helps a variety of people.
Gatward says the department tracks the success of the programs each year.
The Hastings Housing Resource Centre will receive $50,000, Belleville Community Trust $29,000, and Canadian Mental Health Association $38,000.
The issue now goes to Hastings County Council for approval.
