(KSL News) -- Salt Lake County officials have come up with a 10-year plan to reduce chronic homelessness.

The plan from the Salt Lake County Council of Governments aims to get homeless people into housing faster and then offer support services like job training and drug-abuse treatment.

The plan includes building 600 housing units for the almost 2,000 chronically homeless people in Salt Lake County.

The plan does have its critics. They say the plan is "superficial" and lacks "any guts".
