Feinstein Announces Grants for California Homeless Veterans

More than two dozen California cities receive funds for supportive housing programs

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today announced $10.5 million in grants from Housing and Urban Development’s Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program will be awarded to California programs that give homeless veterans access to supportive housing.

“These grants will steer funding to more than two dozen California cities in need of additional supportive housing for our homeless veterans.” Senator Feinstein said.

“I’m pleased to see additional resources committed to California’s homelessness crisis. I firmly believe we must combine housing with services to make sure the veterans we bring in from the street don’t find themselves back out there.

“These grants are a welcome help and I look forward to continuing to find ways federal resources can be used to address homelessness across California.”
