Joplin has previously received HUD-VASH vouchers to support veterans housing across the city. With this latest award, the Joplin Housing Authority now has 34 VASH vouchers. In an April 6 news release HUD announced the award of more than 87,000 vouchers nationwide.
The VA Health Care System of the Ozarks (Fayetteville, AR)/Mount Vernon Community-Based Outpatient Clinic will identify homeless veterans who are eligible for the services and housing vouchers and refer the vets to the housing agency.
