Senate committee trying to find safe housing for homeless female veterans
The federal government is trying to continue in its mission to eliminate veteran homelessness over the next five years.
The Senate Veterans’ Affair Committee introduced a bill Monday intended to help homeless female veterans dealing with few safe housing options, according to Army Times.
Senate Bill 3309 would provide community grants for transitional housing on the condition that it meets physical privacy, safety and security needs for veterans.
The bill also includes provisions for providing legal services to help low-income veterans find permanent housing, Army Times reports.
