May DCHC Community Update

Updates from the Denton County Homeless Coalition for members and community stakeholders.


Barriers Fund
The Denton County Barriers Fund is all about opening doors and reducing barriers to stable housing. The fund has three purposes: Client Assistance, Landlord Outreach and Special Projects. The Denton County Barriers Fund is intended as a ‘fund of last resort’, and is meant to be accessed when no other funding or resources are available in the community to ensure housing stability for people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness.

Agencies can now visit the online application portal for the Denton County Barriers Fund, in hopes that agencies can easily apply for client assistance funds.

The Denton County Homeless Coalition Barriers Fund Steering Committee is ready and waiting for requests!
