BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration says it is directing $15 million toward the development of supportive housing for veterans, the homeless and some low-income families in the state.

With the addition of 235 new supportive housing units, officials say they have now funded more than 3,000 units, tripling a goal set by the governor in 2012.

Supportive housing, operated in conjunction with nonprofit agencies around the state, aims to help individuals or families that are homeless or could become homeless, or are at risk of being institutionalized.

The housing can include services such as childcare, mental health care or job training.
