FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — More people experiencing homelessness in Fayetteville will now have somewhere to go during severe weather.

The Fayetteville City Council approved a budget change on August 15 to allow for a $25,000 grant to the Shelter Assistance from Extreme Weather program.

With the grant, the program is providing extra emergency beds when the weather is a threat to the health and safety of the homeless community.
