Alliance Expands Veteran Housing Assistance Program
August 1, 2013 Alliance has been awarded a $2 million grant from the Veteran’s Administration to expand housing and outreach and assistance services to veterans throughout 10 additional counties in Maryland. Alliance has been serving the Baltimore metropolitan area since October 2011 with $1 million in grant funds from the VA. Beginning October 1, 2013, an additional $1 million in grant funding per year will allow Alliance’s veteran team to serve the Eastern Shore as well as Washington and Frederick Counties in addition to its current service area. The program, Supportive Services for Veteran Families, seeks to prevent homelessness among veterans or provide assistance to rapidly rehouse veterans experiencing homelessness. Alliance expects to serve 650 participants over a 12 month period.
