Killeen’s Families In Crisis will receive more than $660,000 in grant money from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald announced Wednesday a total of $1,207,277 in homeless prevention grants to the Central Texas counties of Bastrop, Bell, Coryell, Hamilton, Travis and Williamson. The grants will serve about 320 homeless and at-risk veteran families as part of the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program.

As part of the program, VA awards grants to private nonprofit organizations and consumer cooperatives that provide services to low-income veteran families living in, or transitioning to, permanent housing. Those community organizations provide a range of services that promote housing stability among eligible low-income veteran families.
