ACTION ALERT - Help Support Homeless Veterans Now! Federal legislation March 24, 2016

Urge your Representative to support funding to help veterans who face difficulties re-entering civilian life. Too many vets face challenges finding a job and a home.

A bipartisan effort is underway in the U.S. House of Representatives to support funding for a federal program to help veterans experiencing homelessness or who are at-risk of homelessness to get the supports they need to find jobs and reintegrate into their communities. Representatives Greg Walden (R-Oregon), Kathleen Rice (D-New York), Ryan Costello (R-Pennsylvania), and Brad Ashford (D-Nebraska) are asking that Congress robustly fund the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program at the U.S. Department of Labor to ensure these veterans have the tools they need to succeed in the workplace.
Thank you for your continued advocacy and support of programs that serve our service members and veterans.
