Veterans Affairs awards $3M to 2 groups for homeless vets


The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced the award of $207 million in grants for at-risk and homeless veterans, including $3 million for two Hawaii organizations.

United States Veterans Initiative (U.S. VETS) and Catholic Charities Hawaii will each receive $1.5 million through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, the VA said Tuesday.

The grant program “connects community-based homelessness organizations with the VA to confront homelessness while addressing the distressing challenges that can face our veterans,” U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said in a release.

In August, U.S. VETS and Catholic Charities Hawaii also received fiscal 2014 grants of $1 million and $1.1 million, respectively, for the same purpose, Gabbard said.
