The Fargo-Moorhead Coalition for Homeless Persons has received a 2017 Community Innovation prize from the Bush Foundation.
The Coalition will receive $69,000.
The Coalition’s Cody Schuler said Bush earlier gave the group an innovation grant. He said the grant was used to go beyond just providing a homeless person with temporary shelter and a bed for a night – instead, it is geared toward ending homelessness.
Schuler said because Fargo and Moorhead are border communities, they face a unique problem.
