The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced today over $4 million will be allotted to 13 public agencies in Texas to provide housing and case management for nearly 700 homeless veterans.The grants are part of $72.6 million given nationally in 2012 to support of 10,000 homeless veterans.

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said “It’s a national disgrace that one out of every six men and women in our shelters once wore a uniform to serve our country, but we know that by providing housing assistance and case management services, we can significantly reduce the number of veterans living on our streets.  Working together, HUD, VA and local housing agencies are making real progress toward ending veteran homelessness once and for all.”

In the local area, the Housing Authority of Lubbock will receive $143,669 in funds, the Housing Authority of Abilene will receive $161,208, and City of Amarillo Housing Authority will receive $ 146,066.
