Feds Change Their Minds, Fund Homeless Veteran Programs

(Madison, WI) -- The federal government has changed its mind about cutting off funds to care for Wisconsin homeless veterans.

The V-A has given the Badger State a one year reprieve from a federal order to restructure its programs or face the loss of one-million dollars in funds each year. The money is used to care for 57 homeless veterans at the state's nursing homes for vets at Union Grove in Racine County and King in Waupaca County. After this year, Wisconsin will compete with others for the funds -- and reports say the state's type of system will be among the least likeliest to get federal dollars.
