The Wisconsin Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee will meet Thursday to discuss expanding grant programs to help the homeless. More than $12 million would be added to the Department of Administration’s Shelter for Homeless and Housing Grants program in the two-year state budget. About $10 million would pay for housing and services for the homeless – distributed by local governments and organizations. It’s estimated the additional money would be enough to help another 16,500 people in Wisconsin.
