Measure to give homeless agency representation
moves forward

CLEVELAND (AP) -- A city council committee
approved and sent to the full council a proposal
to provide homeless people with representation on
the boards of agencies that serve them.

The measure received its first reading Monday
night before city council. Sponsor Councilman Joe
Cimperman said today that he expects final
approval after second and third readings, which
are procedural moves.

The proposed ordinance would require nonprofit
agencies that get money to help the homeless to
have at least two homeless or formerly homeless
people on their boards.

The legislation would require social workers from
other agencies to be on boards dealing with
homelessness to bring different perspectives.
Cleveland received $1.25 million in federal money
to help about 10,000 homeless this year, an
increase of $400,000 from last year.
