Anchorage's homeless coordinator, Nancy Burke, says the city is running out of funds to help house the homeless.

"We've done a very good job of making the best use of resources in the community in the past couple of years and now we are at a point where we need more resources," said Burke.

Burke said in the last three years the Berkowitz administration has housed more than 300 homeless people who were deemed to have the highest needs. About a year ago, the city received 80 housing vouchers for rental assistance that were mostly paid for with federal funds. Burke said the vouchers are currently unavailable.
