LITTLE ROCK — An additional 30 homeless veterans in Fayetteville will soon find permanent housing funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

HUD and The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced Wednesday that the Fayetteville Housing Authority will receive $112,125 to fund an additional 30 vouchers for homeless veterans, bringing the total number of HUD vouchers awarded to Fayetteville since 2008 to 115. Such vouchers help pay for housing 315 veterans statewide, officials said.

The award is part of $60 million that HUD is providing to local public housing agencies across the country to provide permanent supportive housing to veterans living on the street or in shelters, many living with chronic disabling conditions.

Local public housing authorities provide rental assistance to homeless veterans while nearby VA medical centers offer supportive services and case management.
