Lee County commissioners voted to allocate an additional $208,671 in Emergency Solutions Grant CARES Act funds to help rapidly rehouse about 30 households experiencing homelessness. 

The allocation is part of the board’s continuing commitment to assist those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 530 individuals have been rehoused using pandemic funding from various sources. 

Lee County Human & Veterans Services serves as a collaborative hub for resources—federal, state, local, private and nonprofit—designated to aid Lee County residents through supportive programs and services. 

The county accepted emergency solutions grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in June and December 2020. This action allocated funds from administration and outreach to rapid rehousing. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness, call 239-533-7996.
