Posted on May 7, 2012 by Ray Williams (NMLS #216267).

One of many improvements have been made in helping to get our veterans in homes.  U.S. Housing and Urban Development announces that HUD will provide $72.6 million to public housing agencies in all 50 states and district of Colombia to supply housing and case management for more than 10,000 veterans.

This funding is in effort to help prevent and end homelessness among veterans.  This is the first of two rounds of the 2012 HUD-VASH funding.  Hud expects to announce the remaining funding by the end of this summer.
