At the April 9th Steering Committee meeting, members discussed a proposal for Improving the Region’s Homeless Response System. WHI leaders had been given the opportunity to systematically address barriers that individuals and families experiencing homelessness face. The goal: to find ways to address these barriers quickly and permanently. The Livingston-Washtenaw CHIR would be eligible to receive up to $110,000 in funding to develop and implement a plan. The project was approved and the work commenced shortly thereafter.
