50,000 HOMELESS VETERANS EACH YEAR - LA HIGHEST POPULATION - SAN DIEGO SECOND
PUBLIC CEO on SAN DIEGO HOMELESS VETS full article
San Diego has the second-highest number of homeless veterans in the state, yet it barely secured any money from a new state program that doles out funds for new veteran housing projects.
California launched its Veterans Homeless and Housing program this year, making $75 million available to private developments that would build new homes for low-income and homeless veterans. San Diego was meant to get about $5 million of that money, based on the size of its homeless population.
But just one project in the county applied for the state funds, securing just under $1 million – the smallest of all grants awarded. Los Angeles, meanwhile, brought in $25 million for eight veteran housing projects.
The rest of the money meant for San Diego projects was left up for grabs for other projects in the state.
