LAS VEGAS (AP) — A southern Nevada program that helps homeless veterans get back on their feet is getting a boost from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Democratic Nevada Congresswoman Dina Titus announced Friday that the agency awarded $230,000 to the United States Veterans Initiative site in Las Vegas.
The money will go to the Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program.
Titus noted that veterans account for about 12 percent of the adult homeless population, and said the grant will provide critical funds for Las Vegas programs that help them.
