$1.5 Million+ secured to assist Montana’s homeless veteransU.S. Senator Jon Tester, Chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, announced more than $1.5 million in American Rescue Plan funding to help end veteran homelessness in Montana.

As Chairman, Tester fought to secure billions in the American Rescue Plan to provide health care services and related support to eligible veterans, including extended support for veterans who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless.

“The Volunteers of America Northern Rockies do incredible work year after year to aid Montana veterans as they transition from military to civilian life, and it’s why I’m proud to have cut red tape on funding in Congress to help them continue their mission,” said Chairman Tester. “This funding will get relief where it’s needed most-providing more veterans a safe place to call home during the pandemic and beyond.”
