RENO (AP) — Nevada will receive about $1 million in federal grants to help homeless veterans find permanent housing.
Under the grants announced Tuesday, Clark County will get $670,000 and the Reno Housing Authority will get $348,000 for housing vouchers to aid homeless veterans.
The funding is part of the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program, a joint effort between federal and local agencies.
Nationwide, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says it will provide more than $72 million to public housing agencies in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The effort is designed to supply permanent housing and case management services for more than 10,000 homeless veterans across the country.
Participating veterans rent privately owned housing and generally contribute no more than 30 percent of their income toward rent.
