Dept. of Veterans Affairs announces $500,000 grant to help homeless Chippewa Falls veterans
LA CROSSE, Wis. — The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded a $500,000 grant to the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs’s Chippewa Falls program.
Rep. Ron Kind of Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional district announced the grant Monday.
According to a press release, the money will go towards providing transitional housing for homeless veterans.
“Helping Wisconsin’s homeless veterans transition to a stable living situation requires an all hands on deck approach,” Rep. Kind said. “After all of the work our veterans have done for us it is our duty to make sure they receive the care and services they have earned.”
The U.S. Department of Veterans announced it is providing a total of approximately $185 million in per diem funding for 556 projects and community agencies that provide transitional housing and supportive care for homeless veterans. The award was made to programs in 49 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
The Chippewa Falls program is subcontracted to and operated by the Veteran Assistance Foundation at Klein Hall.
