Hawaii OKs $12M to tackle homelessness

Hawaii lawmakers set aside more money to tackle the highest rate of homelessness in the nation — a crisis that has left families with children living on sidewalks alongside the beaches of paradise.

The Legislature allocated $12 million in new funding during the session ending Thursday. It will go toward social services and clearing out homeless encampments.

The amount surpassed Gov. David Ige's funding request and added to the more than $15 million the state already spends annually to address the problem.
