Gov. Malloy: Connecticut Receives $700k to Combat Veteran HomelessnessGovernor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has awarded Connecticut nearly $700,000 in federal funding to support Connecticut’s efforts to help end veteran homelessness.
“To build an economy for the future, we need to make smart choices on housing. Our nation’s veterans, whether they are just returning home or have been out for years, deserve access to quality housing, good healthcare, and career opportunities,” Governor Malloy said. “We have done more on housing over the past several years than Connecticut has done in decades — and it’s because we’re building a brighter tomorrow by making smart choices today. We have an opportunity to make a significant impact to improve the lives of those who have given so much for their country, and I am confident that we can reach our goal of ending chronic homelessness among veterans.”
