Veterans Affairs And Housing And Urban Development Making Sure Every Veteran Has A Home

The two agencies responsible for making sure every veteran has a home are releasing more money for local housing authorities. The departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development are trying to end homelessness among veterans by 2015. They say the $60 million in new grants will help 9,000 veterans find permanent homes. That's most of the money appropriated this year for the program. In January 2012, more than 62,000 vets were without homes.

Veteran or not,some have chosen that route.When its all said and done,differentiating between the needs of the non vet homeless and the vet homeless will be almost impossible.In other words,addressing the needs of one specific group over the other is unconstitutional.Human rights groups will be all over this one.
