The federal government has awarded more than $12 million in federal funding so far this year to help house and support the chronically homeless in Los Angeles County, officials said in a statement Wednesday.

The cash will be used in part to fund a new program through the Ocean Park Community Center in Santa Monica to find permanent housing for 40 people and their families who are chronically homeless and suffer from severe mental illness or physical disabilities, according to a statement.

The grant funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and will provide a financial boon to more than 16 programs offered by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority and Los Angeles County's Housing Authority.

The two organizations were awarded little more than $12 million for all of 2010, according to the statement.
