State providing rental help for homeless veterans

Hartford, Conn. (WTNH) – The state has made another step forward in Governor Malloy’s goal to end homelessness among Connecticut veterans by the end of the years. The Department of Housing says it will allocate fifty

Rental Assistance Program vouchers to homeless vets. The agency had previously issued fifty vouchers, exclusively for the use of veterans. Under the state’s new system, all veterans experiencing homelessness should be put into secure interim housing within thirty days and permanent housing within three months.

The program is being funded through state subsidies, in addition to federal assistance.
