A La Crosse County plan to offer emergency funds for housing this winter comes before the full county board for vote Thursday.
Last week, the board’s executive committee approved plans to spend leftover money from a homelessness prevention program to pay for expenses such as hotel vouchers.
The aim is to limit the number of people sent to community shelters during the cold weather months.
The $169,000 in funding would come from what remains of a county prevention plan that started with $500,000 in 2018.
The money could be used for a hotel voucher program, similar to what the city of La Crosse did last winter, or to find other types of temporary shelter. The special use of those funds would be permitted until the end of April.
The county board meeting starts at 6 p.m at the administrative building on 6th Street. Here’s the agenda.
