The Patrick administration announced $6 million in new state financial supports on Monday for the development of 44 new units of housing for homeless veterans in Quincy, Brockton and Chelsea.
Housing and Community Development Undersecretary Aaron Gornstein and Veterans’ Services Secretary Coleman Nee made the funding announcement at the North Bellingham Veterans Project in Chelsea, where money will be spent to develop 10 units of housing as part of a re-use project in the downtown area to convert a former American Legion Hall.
The state bond funds will also be used for new construction projects to build 22 units in Brockton and 12 units in Quincy at East Howard Street with preferences for low-income veterans and their families.
In July, DHCD dedicated $3.3 million to build 35 new units of affordable housing for homeless veterans in Shrewsbury.
