Sen. Murray Adding $75 Million to Homeless Veterans Fund

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON--$75 million dollars will be spread across the country, helping support approximately 10,000 homeless veterans.

250 live in Washington State.

Senator Patty Murray added the funding for HUD's Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program or HUD-VASH  into the 2008 transportation and funding bill.

The money, averaging $909.00 dollars per vet, will provide local public housing agencies with rental vouchers.

Estimates show one in four of America's homeless are veterans.
