The federal government will disburse $1.6 million to Michigan housing authorities and VA medical centers in an effort to fight homelessness among Michigan veterans.
The bulk of the funding – just under $1 million – will go to the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and the John D. Dingell VA Medical Center, located in Detroit.
The Ann Arbor Housing Commission, Kent County Housing Commission, and Lansing Housing Commission, along with VA health care facilities in those locations, will each receive $100,000 or more.
The funding is part of the VA’s Supportive Housing program, which combines vouchers for rental housing with clinical services and case management.
Michigan’s US senators, Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, announced the allocation in a statement that stressed the sacrifice U.S. soldiers make and the importance of helping them secure permanent housing and adequate health care.
