Lafayette City Council to vote on $1M for new homeless shelter

Housing advocates have pushed for new shelter space since the pandemic. Lafayette lacks shelter beds and affordable housing.

Lafayette’s City Council may spend $1 million to help build a new shelter for people experiencing homelessness this month as the area’s unhoused population continues to grow. The Acadiana Regional Coalition on Homelessness and Housing is set to receive $1 million in federal stimulus money from the city if the City Council approves Councilman Glenn Lazard’s bid to do so at its next meeting on July 19.
