The Associated Press

The state of Arkansas and the cities of Fort Smith and West Memphis will share $33 million in U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funding to support community development and produce more affordable housing.

HUD officials said last week that the money also will help fund housing for the homeless and provide permanent housing for individuals living with HIV and AIDS.

Officials say the state of Arkansas will receive $17.62 million in funding for the Community Development Block Grant program; $12.2 million for the HOME Investment Partnerships program; $1.2 million for the Emergency Shelter Grant program and $544,000 for HUD's Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS.

Officials say Fort Smith will get $1.21 million and West Memphis will get $378,000.
