LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada organizations have been awarded a total of $4.65 million in grants to combat homelessness among veterans and their families.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the Department of Veteran Affairs’ Supportive Services for Veteran Families program announced the funding Tuesday. The grants are aimed to help low-income veteran’s families maintain stability in their current homes or to move to permanent housing.

The program is in its fourth year and serves about 1,000 veterans.

This year the United States Veterans Initiative was awarded more than $1.2 million; Vietnam Veterans of California Inc., nearly $2 million; HELP Social Service Corp., about $954,000; and The Salvation Army more than $463,000.
