106. The federal money is passed on to the states and that is passed on to us.
I was homeless in San Diego for a while. I spent a some minutes talking to homeless people in San Francisco this weekend.

I prepare grant submissions for HUD homeless grants.

Federal dollars become state dollars that become county dollars. If there was a new Federal homeless program it would go to the States as a block grant. The counties apply for block grant money. The counties spend the money on Community Based Organizations which are non profits that work with homeless. Also counties get Medicaid money which is past to the Sates first then to the counties. Ours is called medical. The feds pay 50% of the cost and with ARRA they add another 1.59%. The other part comes from local funds. There always is a match that local governments pay.
