The number of homeless veterans increased by over seven percent from 2022 to 2023, reaching a total of 35,574, according to a report from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Advocates believe the actual number may be higher. The Department of Veterans Affairs plans to increase grant programs to prevent homelessness among veterans, acknowledging the impact of housing costs and the end of pandemic-era support.

VA Secretary Denis McDonough emphasized the commitment to ensuring veterans have safe, stable housing. (Trending: Prominent LGBTQ Activist Arrested Over Disturbing Charges)

“One veteran experiencing homelessness will always be one too many, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that veterans get the safe, stable housing that they deserve,” McDonough stated.

“VA will investigate these barriers and do everything in its power to help Veterans overcome them,” the statement read.
