The funding will provide homeless veterans with rental assistance. Harkin is a senior member of the Appropriations Committee and a member of the subcommittee that funds HUD.

The HUD VASH tenant-based vouchers will enable homeless veterans and their families to access affordable existing housing of their choice. Each veteran that receives a voucher will also receive an array of supportive services provided by the Veterans Administration.
