Help should be on the way for homeless veterans in the Upper Peninsula.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program is providing more than $34,000 in assistance.
The program combines rental assistance vouchers with case management and clinical services provided by the VA to help homeless veterans find and keep permanent housing.
Senator Gary Peters says on any given night, there are nearly 50,000 veterans across the country without a roof over their heads.
Peters says this investment provides much needed assistance to help homeless veterans in the Upper Peninsula find a permanent place to call home, and helps keep our promise to support our service members, veterans and their families.
The State of Michigan is receiving a total investment of $1.6 million for the program.
