As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs plan to expand the Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program, more than $2.1 million is being given to Catholic Charities Hawaii and the United States Veterans Initiative.

The assistance is expected to benefit 566 homeless and at-risk veteran households across the state.
Catholic Charities Hawaii is getting $1,108,224.
United States Veterans Initiative will be receiving $1,017,000.
