WORCESTER — Veterans Inc. will receive a $1 million government grant to improve housing and expand support services for people with very low incomes, members of the state’s congressional delegation announced last week.
The money comes from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and is awarded through the Supportive Services for Veterans Families Program. The funding is for organizations serving very low-income veterans’ families who are living in or transitioning to permanent housing.
“We are honored to be selected to be able to provide these services to veteran families throughout New England,” said Vincent J. Perrone, president and CEO of Veterans Inc. “With the award of this grant, Veterans Inc. will continue to raise the bar in assisting our veteran families in need.”
Veterans Inc., headquartered in Massachusetts, works to end homelessness among veterans. It claims an 85 percent success rate for moving veterans into homes.
