PHOENIX – The city of Tempe will rehabilitate a motel to temporarily house more than 100 people experiencing homelessness after Maricopa County approved $7.3 million in federal funding.

Tempe will provide an additional $3 million to the project, according to a Maricopa County press release on Monday.

There will be up to 60 units that will be able to house about 120 individuals experiencing homelessness, the release said. A location has yet to be announced.

“With the purchase of this motel, we can provide shelter and support to those in need, and help them find a sustainable plan to end their homelessness,” Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman said in the release.

The shelter can accommodate all individuals experiencing homelessness, including families with children, people with disabilities, seniors, couples, singles and those with pets.
