FOX 7 Discussion: Nonprofit group to take over state-run homeless camp

On Thursday, TxDOT approved lease negotiations with ATX Helps, a coalition between the Downtown Austin Alliance and the Chamber of Commerce.

The state will lease out Camp R.A.T.T. for $1 a month to the group, and they will build a 300-bed shelter on the site.

ATX Helps leader and Austin Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Mike Rollins joins Marcel Clarke in the FOX 7 Austin studio to talk about the deal in more detail.
