Congressman Greg Walden says the Veterans Administration plans to release 25 housing vouchers soon for needy veterans. Walden met with veterans in Central Oregon Monday. The hiring of a caseworker held up releasing these vouchers, but Walden says things are moving forward. “It’s for people who have multiple issues and multiple needs. And they need help, probably more than we know.” These vouchers let veterans rent housing at a significantly discounted rated. Walden hopes to issue another 30 such housing vouchers to veterans next year.
