A proposal by the Scott administration would help the homeless and transition away from a $48 million hotel voucher system.

The new plan has a $21 million price tag:

-$10 million for the voucher program

-$6 million to help people find housing

-$2.5 million in temporary rental assistance

-$3.7 million for one-time payments to help more than 700 families

-$250,000 to encourage landlords to rent to people who they might consider a risk

Our Darren Perron asked Rita Markley from the Committee on Temporary Shelter how this would work. Watch the video for the interview.
