From WFXR News:
Federal funding to help homeless veterans find affordable and stable housing in our area is included in the congressional bipartisan budget deal.
The dollars will fund a partnership program between the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
“Our nation’s veterans have sacrificed so much in service to our nation, and we owe them our support as they make the transition to civilian life,” said U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine in a joint statement.
The program offers homeless veterans, rental assistance vouchers through HUD, in addition to case management and clinical services provided by the VA.
Here are the following agencies in the Commonwealth that would receive funds:
Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority will receive $42,294 for 5 housing units.
Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority will receive $304,980 for 25 housing units.
