New Orleans Housing Agency Gets Money For Homeless Vets

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Housing Authority of New Orleans says it's getting money to provide housing vouchers for 22 homeless veterans.

         The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will provide $141,500 worth of vouchers on Aug. 1.

         The housing authority said in a news release Thursday that this will bring the total number of such vouchers to 343 since 2011, when it distributed its first 100 vouchers under the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program.

         It says 250 veterans are currently using vouchers for rent, 47 are waiting for eligible apartments, and HANO will have 46 vouchers available for distribution after Aug. 1.
