New Legislation Aims to End Homelessness among Veterans


(Northland’s NewsCenter) – The bipartisan bill, designed by U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, improves homeless services outreach to rural and under-served urban veterans.

It also strengthens an existing program that provides housing vouchers, and helps with accessing counseling and job training to veterans.

According to veterans, the legislation will do just as much for homelessness prevention as it will for those already homeless.

“By having the opportunity to have job training, [and] special opportunities for employers [to] make concessions on hiring them, it’s going to help us not end homelessness, but prevent it—and that’s the key,” said Vietnam veteran Durbin Keeney.

The legislation has passed the House and Senate, and is awaiting the President’s signature.
