VA Announces Homeless Program Awards

WASHINGTON (Oct. 3, 2003)- The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) today
identified recipients of approximately $12.5 million in grants as part of
VA's Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program. Recipients are
community and faith-based organizations, as well as state, local and Indian
tribal governments that provide critical services to homeless veterans.

"These awards demonstrate President Bush's commitment to ending chronic
homelessness in America," said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Anthony J.
Principi. "VA is proud of its role in combating homelessness. I am
confident that these grants will improve the lives of many veterans in their
time of need."

Thirty-eight programs in 25 states have been named to share $8.5 million in
grants. These grants will assist community-based agencies acquire,
renovate, or build transitional housing facilities, provide supportive
services for homeless veterans and purchase vans for outreach to or
transportation of homeless veterans.

The awards will support opening 451 beds, one independent service center and
one service center operating in conjunction with supportive housing.
Twenty-six organizations will receive funds to purchase 33 vans.
Priority for the grants was given to Indian tribal governments and
organizations in states without veteran-specific programs. Five awards were
to providers in four of the targeted states. Those programs are located in
Alaska, Montana, New Hampshire and North Dakota. Two grants were awarded to
organizations associated with Indian tribal governments.

For the first time, VA is also providing grants to community-based agencies
for renovations needed to comply with requirements of the Life Safety Codes
of the

National Fire Protection Association, which must be met by 2006. VA has
awarded more than $4 million to 28 programs for sprinkler and alarm systems
or other safety-related structural changes. Individual awards range from
about $14,600 to nearly $700,000. Organizations selected for Life Safety
Code grants operate facilities established under previous VA grants.

A summary of approved projects is attached. More information about VA's
Homeless Assistance Programs and Initiatives can be found at
