Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) announced a $242,655 grant award for Davenport, Iowa through the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. The grant will go to the Humility of Mary Shelter to serve over 100 homeless and at-risk veteran families in Scott County.

“This grant is an important step towards making sure our veterans get the care and services they need,” said Rep. Braley. “No veteran or their family should be out on the street – but right now, it’s a tragic reality and one we must work to fix as quickly as possible. That’s why I’m proud to announce this grant for the Humility of Mary Shelter – and that’s why I’ll keep fighting to make sure our veterans, and their families, get the care and services they need.”
