But we're talking about a homeless population, correct?

There is Section 8 housing all over my city, no shortage of it. If you do the math: welfare + section 8 housing, you come out ahead by going through the Feds.

I guess the Feds themselves could make these homes into Sec. 8, but in my area HUD always prefers big apartment buildings. I rarely see Sec. 8 homes.

There's a certain amount that can be done by leveraging existing federal government programs. But obviously federal government programs are always designed with the objective of only taking care of a part of the problem at hand ... or at least, over the past thirty years they have been.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
