VA gives nearly $100 million to help at-risk and homeless veterans

WASHINGTON – The Department of Veterans Affairs said Tuesday it would award nearly $100 million in grants to groups that help homeless veterans as well as those at risk of becoming homeless.

The grants will serve 151 community agencies in 49 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico and are expected to target 42,000 homeless and at-risk vets and their families.

The grants are part of a VA initiative that partners with private non-profits and consumer groups to provide services for veterans and their families in – or transitioning to – permanent housing.
