Wasco County Hopeful State Homeless Money Coming

Wasco County wasn’t included in the first round of funding for housing assistance recently approved in the Oregon Legislature, but may be in line to receive monies in an upcoming bill.  County Commissioner Steve Kramer says Governor Tina Kotek’s staff says the County is in line to get a piece of a $27 million pool for the 26 counties that were not addressed in the first bill.  Kramer said he’s working with Mid-Columbia Community Action Executive Director Kenny LaPoint to put together what is needed for the state to award the funds.  Kramer did say the Mid-Columbia is fortunate because Wasco, Hood River, and Sherman counties work together well on a regional basis to receive state funds.
