United Veterans Beacon House gets $1.39M from NY

United Veterans Beacon House will receive $1.39 million from New York to create homes for chronically homeless male veterans who are living with physical, mental health and/or substance abuse issues.

The money for the nonprofit is part of $5.4 million awarded for three supportive housing programs - the other two are in Rochester. Beacon House will use the money to create 12 congregate housing units with 22 beds. The project involves acquiring and rehabilitating two single-family houses in Huntington that are adjacent to each other to serve the veterans.

The grant comes from the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, which provides money and loans to nonprofit corporations, charitable and religious organizations, municipalities and public corporations to acquire, construct or rehabilitate housing for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and are unable to secure adequate housing without special assistance.
