From KIMA-TV:

Just hours before the end of the legislative session in Olympia, the state's capital budget passed, that includes funding for several projects here in the Yakima Valley.

One of the projects is working to house homeless veterans.

Local representatives secured $2.5 million to convert an old U.S. Marine Corps Armory in Yakima into permanent housing for homeless veterans and their families.

The Yakima Housing Authority has been working for years to find housing for homeless veterans locally, but there were missing one piece, funding.

Local State Representatives Jeremie Dufault and Chris Corry requested the remaining money needed for the $17 million project.
