From the Associated Press:
Boston has been awarded $1.8 million in federal funding to provide homes for residents with disabilities and homeless people.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced the funding for the Boston Housing Authority from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on Saturday. It will pay for 139 housing vouchers for residents with disabilities, homeless families and the chronically homeless.
The Democrat said the vouchers will provide a housing lifeline for some of the city's most vulnerable people, while offering services that can help to foster a better quality of life.
