From ABC 5 News Oklahoma City:
Millions of dollars were approved on Thursday to fight homelessness through Oklahoma City's MAPS 4 program.
The plan included a partnership with the Oklahoma City Housing Authority to add more than 500 supportive and transitional units, preserve 1,500 public housing units and build 150 workforce homes.
"This is just a piece in that bigger puzzle to try and help solve the homelessness problem we see here," said David Todd, the MAPS program manager for the city of Oklahoma City.
Five allocations of $10 million were approved by the MAPS 4 Citizens Advisory Board to address the need for housing in Oklahoma.
