WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 19, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-5) today announced a $145,101 U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) Project Based Voucher grant for the Housing Authority of the City of Napa. The grant will provide 17 Section 8 VASH vouchers for the Valley View Senior Homes.
This is the first VASH award ever received in Napa County.
“How appropriate that, just as we are honoring our veterans on Veterans Day, we learned that we will be able to provide a home for 17 chronically homeless veterans right here in American Canyon. We are particularly pleased that the grant provides not only housing, but also a range of support services for these veterans in order to ensure their successful transition to a stable home environment. Thanks to the City of Napa Housing Authority and Satellite Affordable Housing Associates for partnering with us on this project, the first of its kind in Napa County,” said American Canyon Mayor Leon Garcia.
