VA awards multi-million dollar grant to NM

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The federal Department of Veterans Affairs is sending millions of dollars to New Mexico to help get homeless vets off the streets.

The secretary of the department announced the award of more than $2 million in homeless prevention grants Monday.

The grants are aimed at helping both New Mexico vets and their families largely through what’s called ‘supportive services’.

That state program distributes the money to non-profits providing services promoting housing stability for low income vets. This is the program’s fourth year.
