$1 million grant will serve veterans in East Tennessee

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Homeless veterans in upper East Tennessee could see more assistance coming their way through a $1 million Veterans Affairs grant.

The Appalachian Regional Coalition on Homelessness announced on Monday that it has received the grant from the VA's Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, which provides grants to organizations that can provide services to very low-income veterans living in or transitioning to permanent housing.

The Bristol Herald Courier reports ARCH will be working with People Inc. of Southwest Virginia and Tennessee Valley Coalition to End Homelessness to serve veterans that go to the James Quillen VA Medical Center in Johnson City.
