New Grants for Veteran Housing & Support in California
U.S.VETS has been awarded first round Proposition 41 funding for two projects totaling more than $10.8 million that will provide housing and extensive supportive services for homeless low-income veterans.
“This first round of awards is a historic investment by the State of California in efforts to end veteran homelessness in California,” said Steve Peck, president and CEO of U.S.VETS. “These grants will dramatically enhance our efforts to provide housing and intensive supportive services such as case management, drug and alcohol counseling, health clinics, disability benefit advocacy, mental health support as well as family and childcare services.”
U.S.VETS is the development partner and service provider for March Veterans Village in Riverside, which will provide 150 units of permanent supportive housing and 50 transitional housing beds; and Liberty Lane in Redlands, which is 40 units of permanent supportive housing.
