JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana behavioral health provider will use a $225,000 federal Housing and Urban Development grant to help convert its transitional housing program into permanent housing for homeless people.

Lifespring Inc. Vice President of Development Beth Keeney says its transitional program currently has 28 beds with 10 two-bed units and eight single-bed units. Keeney serves on the Jeffersonville-Clarksville Homelessness Task Force.

The (Louisville, Ky.) Courier Journal reports the new program is expected to begin Sept. 1.

A number of homeless people are being displaced by new bridge construction over the Ohio River in Jeffersonville.
