The federal government has announced over $1 million in funding to projects in North Battleford and Meadow Lake aimed at addressing homelessness.


The funding is being provided under Ottawa’s Urban Aboriginal Homelessness Fund.


In North Battleford, the money will be used to establish a transitional home for homeless Aboriginal teen mothers and single girls.


Meanwhile, in Meadow Lake, the federal funding will go towards the construction of a 14-unit transitional housing facility with eight emergency beds for Aboriginal single parent families.
