WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that the Davenport Housing Commission has been awarded $83,870 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program. VASH provides rental assistance under a supportive housing program for homeless veterans. Senator Harkin is a senior member of the Appropriations subcommittee that funds HUD.

"Veterans who have honorably served our country should, at the very least, have access to quality, affordable housing," said Harkin. "I am pleased that this funding is going to Davenport to provide our local veterans with some assistance in obtaining independent living arrangements."
