From The Columbian:
U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., announced $2.3 million in statewide funding to house veterans through the HUD-VA Supportive Housing Program, better known as VASH, on Tuesday.
The program combines rental assistance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development with the Department of Veterans Affairs’ case management and clinical services. Vancouver Housing Authority was awarded $385,740 for the program, which started in 2008.
“As a nation we have a responsibility to take care of our veterans, and I’m glad these critical investments will help ensure no Washingtonian who has sacrificed for our country ends up on the street,” Murray said in a news release.
