Titus Announces $12.8 Million in Grants for Supportive Services for Homeless Veterans

Las Vegas, NV – October 1, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Dina Titus, Representative of Nevada’s First Congressional District and a Member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, announced $12.8 million in renewal funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs Grant and Per Diem (GPD) program to provide transitional housing with supportive services for homeless veterans. U.S. Vets, located in Nevada’s First Congressional District, has been awarded $853,000 to provide an average of 25 beds per day for homeless veterans under the “Transition in Place” (TIP) housing model. The TIP program provides housing assistance and supportive services to veterans who, upon completion of the program, remain in the residence and transition to assume responsibility of the housing lease.

“A critical piece to ending veteran homelessness is successfully transferring a veteran from transitional to permanent housing,” said Titus. “This grant will enable U.S. Vets to provide the services needed to prepare veterans to live independently and get back on their feet and into stable housing. I am proud to announce these funds which will bring us one step closer to eliminating veteran homelessness.”
