BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Capital Area Alliance for the Homeless is getting a $250,000 Community Development Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to create a tiny home community for homeless individuals.

The grant was announced at the Tiny Homes, Big Solutions luncheon held Wednesday, March 4.
