WARREN – A $960,000 grant awarded to Family and Community Services by the Department of Veteran Affairs last month will be used to provide market-rate housing assistance for homeless veterans.

Trumbull’s grant was one of 38 projects in 25 states approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Thirty-one of the projects deal with providing transitional housing to homeless veterans.

The local program is expected to be operational in late December to early January.

The goal is to end homelessness among veterans across the United States by 2015.

The grants are being awarded through the Veterans Administration’s Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program’s Transition in Place program.

Transition in Place is a program being developed to provide housing help and counseling for veterans who have found themselves without a place to live.
