U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) on Monday celebrated the announcement by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to award more than $400 million in grants under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program (SSVF) to end veteran homelessness, including over $11 million to Arizona-based groups. The VA will begin disbursing the funding on October 1.
SSVF funding provides thousands of low-income Veteran families around the nation with access to case management and other assistance to rapidly re-house Veterans who become homeless or prevent Veterans from becoming homeless.
“Far too many of our veterans lack adequate housing,” McSally said. “We owe it to these heroes to ensure they have a roof over their heads. As a fellow veteran, I am grateful to see these much-needed grants go to Arizona’s community partners who are committed to ending veterans’ homelessness.”
