ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Veteran families across New Mexico will get a boost thanks to more than $2 million in homeless prevention grants.

The Veterans Affairs Department announced the funding this week as part of the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program.

The grants were awarded to Goodwill Industries of New Mexico, New Mexico Veterans Integration Centers and Mesilla Valley Community of Hope. These were three of 275 community agencies across the nation and in Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands to receive funding.

As part of the veteran families support program, the VA awards grants to private nonprofit organizations and consumer cooperatives that provide services to very low-income veteran families living in or transitioning to permanent housing.

The organizations will provide eligible families with outreach, case management and assistance obtaining VA and other benefits.
