Twenty-five homeless Vermont veterans are going to be getting some help finding a permanent place to live.
The three members of Vermont’s congressional delegation announced Tuesday that $153,000 in federal funds would become available through Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing vouchers.
The vouchers will cover the cost of qualifying rental apartments for homeless veterans and allow them to move from homelessness or temporary shelter into more permanent housing.
Tuesday’s announcement brings the total number of veterans housing vouchers in Vermont to 120.
The Vermont vouchers are part of a $72 million nationwide push to provide permanent housing for more than 10,000 homeless veterans.
