INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Seventy-four homeless veterans in Indiana are getting places to stay with federal funds that will help them pay rent.

The U.S. Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development Veterans Affairs announced this month they are awarding $370,000 to Indiana agencies through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program that combines HUD rental assistance vouchers with case management and clinical services provided by VA.

VA Medical Centers will refer homeless veterans to local housing agencies for the vouchers.

Forty-five of the vouchers have been awarded to Indianapolis, 13 to Fort Wayne, six to South Bend and five each to Gary and Lafayette.

HUD Secretary Julian Castro says the program has helped more than 111,000 formerly homeless veterans nationwide find homes.
