U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson will be in Fort Worth on Wednesday, March 6 to lead a roundtable discussion on veteran homelessness at True Worth Place.

Carson, Mayor Betsy Price and other community stakeholders will discuss Fort Worth’s recent success in housing 181 homeless veterans in 100 days. Carson’s the visit comes a day after Tarrant County-Fort Worth-Arlington Continuum of Care was awarded $13.3 million in HUD funding for FY2019, an increase of $1,047,058 from FY2018. HUD Continuum of Care funds will support 39 projects operated by 12 nonprofit and governmental agencies in Tarrant County. During Mayor Price’s annual state of the city address, she announced Fort Worth’s private foundations pledge to match public investment dollar for dollar.

In June 2018, Carson came to Fort Worth and toured the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center in Fort Worth, the site selected for a demonstration of the department’s EnVision program, one of 17 sites chosen nationally through a competitive application process.

EnVision Centers will work with federal, state and local, private and faith-based programs to “give people the resources to become part of the American Dream,” Carson said at the time.
