Honolulu to get $636,000 to help homeless vets


Honolulu will receive $636,000 in federal funds to help homeless veterans.

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa’s office announced Tuesday the funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs is to provide permanent housing assistance and case management to homeless veterans.

Hanabusa, a member of the Armed Services Committee, says there’s an obligation to ensure veterans have the help they need to transition back to civilian life.

According to the VA, one out of every six men and women in homeless shelters nationwide are veterans.
