Sacramento is set to receive about $32 million in federal funds over nearly four years to keep up its war against the homeless.
The objective, keep homeless people out of emergency rooms.
Mayor Darrell Steinberg said the funds would help the city take an “aggressive approach” to getting people off the streets by targeting those with the most severe problems and often the greatest resistance to accepting help.
The state-run program uses federal health care dollars to target people who overuse expensive services such as emergency rooms and ambulances.
The city expects the money will let it target 3,250 people.
Enjoy your Police State.
