DETROIT (AP) - Efforts to reduce homelessness among veterans in Michigan are getting a boost.

The Michigan State Housing Development Authority Board recently approved a $2 million Housing Development Fund grant for the Michigan Veterans Foundation. The money will support the construction of a new building to house services for veterans in Detroit.

The center will provide an array of services for homeless and low-income veterans in Detroit and southeastern Michigan. MSHDA funding is contingent on the developer securing sufficient operating revenues and community support for the $14 million project.

The board also approved a $750,000 Housing Development Fund grant that provides rental assistance for up to six months to veterans experiencing homelessness. Funds will go to statewide Supportive Services for Veteran Families grantees and Housing Assessment and Resource Agencies.
