Palm Beach County won’t be using any more of its federal community development grant than usual to provide for housing counseling next year, the County Commission decided today. In the wake of the housing crisis, county officials had proposed increasing the portion of the $7.4 million grant devoted to housing counseling and helping the homeless. But the commission voted down the increase because it would have meant taking money away from other nonprofit groups, the commissioners said.
