CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Several housing facilities across West Virginia are sharing nearly $1.4 million in federal funding.

Senators. Joe Manchin and Jay Rockefeller and Rep. Nick Rahall say the funding comes from the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance program.

The federal program is designed to promote community-wide commitment with the goal of ending homelessness.

The state programs receiving funding include the city of Charleston, the Charleston Kanawha Housing Authority, the Cabell-Huntington Coalition for the Homeless, Bartlett House and Caritas House.

Rahall says the funds will help accelerate efforts to provide safe and secure housing for the homeless, including veterans.
