• Veterans fast-tracked as D.C. homelessness skyrockets

    The authority hasn\’t received vouchers for non-
    veteran homeless people in roughly 7 years. A
    special joint program between the departments of
    Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban
    Development received congressional funding for
    60 to 70 homeless veterans, already screened by
    VA, to participate in the Veterans Assisted
    Supportive Housing program on Wednesday.
