Mayor Announces Federal Funding for Veterans Housing
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant of $1.07 million to the Veterans Commons housing project at 150 Otis Street, a new permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless, senior veterans in San Francisco. The grant is part of HUD’s investment in local projects in California which have never received HUD homeless funds in the past, providing critically needed housing and support services to homeless individuals and families.
“The men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces deserve the greatest respect and dignity for having sacrificed so much for our nation,” said Mayor Lee. “San Francisco is committed to helping veterans transition out of military service after returning home and providing them services they need. We are doing this the San Francisco way by providing permanent supportive housing for our most vulnerable veterans.” Read more.
