Four dozen programs run by nonprofits and government agencies in San Diego County were awarded more than $20 million in U.S. Housing and Urban Development grants meant to reduce homelessness, it was announced this week.

The funding is part of a record $2 billion being awarded to more than 7,300 local housing and service programs nationwide.

HUD officials won't return the forfeited money to Syracuse, but on Thursday the federal agency said it approved a new $680,000 grant to continue the Shelter Plus Care program this year.

California received roughly $382 million, the most of any state. HUD officials said Western New York received a 3 percent increase over the previous funding cycle, which will bring approximately $360,000 more to the area. To date, that program has housed almost 1,300 formerly homeless individuals, according to the city.

Homelessness has risen this winter, with more people being listed without a permanent address.

"This funding is critical to local MA programs that are on the front lines of helping those who might otherwise be living on our streets", said David Tille, HUD New England regional administrator, in a statement.

According to HUD, its annual homeless assessment indicated temporary and long-term homelessness among individuals edged up almost 1 percent in 2017. Homelessness among families with children declined 5.4 percent nationwide since 2016, local communities report the number of persons experiencing long-term chronic homelessness and Veterans increased.

Across the nation, local homelessness planning agencies known as Continuums of Care will organize volunteers to help count the number of people located in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs and living unsheltered on the streets. Family homelessness increased by 4 percent. 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.
