State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver is receiving a veterans housing award Thursday from Housing Works.


Specifically, Whisnant is being honored for his work on passing the veterans housing bill.


The law sets aside a portion of real estate recording fees in the state to be used for veterans housing.


Kenny LaPoint with Housing Works says this will help a lot of veterans.


"At the Housing Authority, we have 75 housing vouchers for the chronically homeless veterans that pays for their rental apartments.  The problem is, we can pay their rental, but many don't have the security deposit.  So this will mean the difference between those who can use the vouchers and getting out of homelessness and them not."


The fund won't be set up until 2015, but then it is expected to contain six million dollars that will be used throughout the state to help with veterans housing.
