About 135 homeless veterans in Southwest Washington and Northern Oregon will benefit from a federal grant to provide permanent housing for them.
The grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs was announced Wednesday, along with other grants to pay to house homeless veterans around the country.
Washington will receive $1.5 million for projects around the state. Oregon will receive $1.2 million.
The money will give veterans a place to live as well as case management and clinical services. The Washington and Oregon grants are part of a $60 million national program to help homeless vets.The Associated Press
