Clarksville, Tenn. — Centerstone, Tennessee’s leading provider of behavioral health services, in partnership with the City of Clarksville, has received a $425,700 grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide rental assistance and behavioral healthcare to homeless people.
The grant was presented to Clarksville Mayor Don Trotter at a news conference on February 2 by a representative of the Nashville field office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Known as a Shelter Plus Grant, the funds will be used for rental assistance for the homeless and allow Centerstone to provide mental health and substance abuse treatment services to the beneficiaries of the assistance.
“Centerstone’s ongoing partnership with the City of Clarksville is a strong and successful one, which benefits the numerous homeless individuals we serve together and the entire community,” said David Guth, CEO of Centerstone. “This grant will allow us to continue our efforts to improve the quality of life and likelihood of recovery for homeless individuals.”
The grant is part of $1.4 billion distributed across the United States this past month, the federal government’s largest total award for homeless assistance.
