Nearly two million dollars is coming to New Jersey to help homeless veterans.

The funds are thanks to the U.S. Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.   The money will be used for support and housing for homeless veterans in New Jersey.  Paterson and Jersey City will each get $220,904. 

“There is still much more work to do, but this federal funding will help in the fight to end homelessness among America’s veterans, including about 7,000 veterans in New Jersey,” said New Jersey Congressman Steve Rothman.  Rothman is also a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
