Arkansas Homeless Services Organizations
Federal Government or State of Arkansas agencies do not provide grants directly to individuals who are looking to benefit from Arkansas housing options. But each year, United States Department of Housing and Urban Development does provide grants to governments, nonprofits, and other eligible grantees who administer various housing and community development programs including services for homeless persons. There are many non-profits, charities, community action agencies that provide homeless services to Arkansas residents in need for shelter. As funds are available, those Arkansas homeless service organizations may offer motel vouchers, rent, utilities and utility deposits for homelessness prevention, and food referral services.
