CHARLESTON, South Carolina — South Carolina is receiving almost $450,000 to help dozens of homeless veterans in the state find permanent housing.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Veterans Affairs announced the award Wednesday. The money is in the form of rental vouchers for local public housing agencies and will allow 95 veterans find permanent homes.

The vouchers are being provided under a program that combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services from Veterans Affairs. The vouchers will go to housing authorities in Charleston, Columbia, Greenville and Myrtle Beach.

The money is part of more than $62 million being distributed nationwide as part of an Obama Administration goal of ending homelessness among veterans by the end of next year.
