(Dothan, AL)- In 2009, the Alabama Rural Coalition received a grant for $2.5-Million which was later dispersed to 41 counties in the state.

The funds were used to provide housing by paying rent deposits and utilities.

"We're down to a small amount so around April the program is expected to be fully depleted. There is no sign of re-funding this program,” said Southeast Alabama Coalition for the Homeless President Russell Clausell.

Clausell urges people to contact the legislative branch and request funding for the homeless.
