SALT LAKE CITY — A homeless trust fund that Utahns can contribute to with their tax refunds began on Thursday.
The annual Pamela Atkinson Homeless Trust Fund Tax Campaign was launched by Gov. Gary Herbert at the YWCA Center for Families.
The fund is named for Atkinson, a local advocate for homeless and low-income Utahns.
The fund is bankrolled by the Utah Legislature and by contributions made by individuals on their Utah Individual Income Tax Form TC-40, according to the Utah Department of Workforce Services website. The fund is a competitive grant program to supplement various agencies statewide in moving people out of homelessness.
Moneys from the fund can go toward temporary shelter, transitional housing, case management, outreach and day centers, the department said.
