House Committee Approves Legislation to Aid Homeless Veterans

On March 26, the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee approved, by voice vote, the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Reauthorization Act (H.R. 1171).

Sponsored by Rep. John Boozman (R-AL), the bill would reauthorize $50 million annually through FY2014 for Department of Veterans Affairs homeless veterans programs, such as job training, counseling, and placement services to expedite the reintegration of homeless veterans into the labor force.

The bill also would authorize $10 million annually from FY2010-2014 to provide grants to programs and facilities that “provide dedicated services to women veterans and homeless veterans with children.” The grants would include the above-mentioned services, but also would include child care services.
