Las Vegas, Reno-area programs getting homeless veterans help

Homeless veterans programs in Las Vegas and the Reno area are getting more than $430,000 in federal grants to help more than 60 people with housing and medical services.

U.S. Rep. Dina Titus announced Monday that the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority and the VA’s Southern Nevada Health Care System will get a little more than $300,000.

That should pay for 40 rental assistance vouchers and access to medical services.

In northern Nevada, the Reno Housing Authority and Sierra Nevada Health Care System will get almost $131,000 to offer 23 similar housing vouchers and medical services.

The Democratic congresswoman says the funds are coming from the federal Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development departments. Titus is a member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.
