More than $396,000 will be given to the Hawaii Public Housing Authority to help nearly 45 homeless veterans find permanent housing, announced the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The supportive housing assistance is provided through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program which combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services provided by VA.
