The Boise City Council has voted to approve $2 million to fight homelessness.
The money comes from about $12 million in end-of-year surplus dollars.
Boise Mayor Dave Bieter says the money will be used to create a trust fund that will pay about $100,000 a year as part of the "10-Plan to Reduce and Prevent Chronic Homelessness."
The council adopted the 10-year plan last month.
The plan emphasizes finding permanent housing for homeless people and bringing in additional social services.
The council approved the money yesterday.
