Larsen Announces Grant To Address Homelessness Among Local Veterans

WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 11, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The Housing Authority of Snohomish County (HASCO) received $154,850 in project-based vouchers through the Housing and Urban Development Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. Veterans who participate in the HUD-VASH program contribute no more than 30 percent of their own income toward rent and the remaining balance is paid by the grant to the property owners

HASCO was established in 1971 to increase affordable housing in Snohomish County. HASCO is a long-time recipient of HUD-VASH grants, including a grant to house 12 veterans experiencing homelessness earlier this year. The 20 housing units funded with this new grant brings HASCO’s total number of HUD-VASH vouchers to 219.

Larsen also announced a bill earlier this week that would expand benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to veterans who are unable to conceive children because of service-related injuries.
