WASHINGTON – S- April 20, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, today announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have made $118,741 available to help veterans find permanent homes.
The funds are made available through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program, which combines HUD rental assistance with VA case management and clinical services to offer veterans support in obtaining and maintaining permanent housing.

The grants are awarded as follows:
Stark County Housing Authority – $41,591.00
