Columbiana County agency gets fed funds to help area veterans


U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, which aims to prevent veterans from becoming homeless and to quickly rehouse veterans and their families who become homeless, has awarded $14.3 million to 15 organizations in Ohio.

The Community Action Agency of Columbiana County Inc., which serves Columbiana, Carroll, Harrison, Jefferson, Mahoning and Tuscarawas counties, received $137,049.

The funds provide outreach, assistance obtaining VA benefits, and case management to low-income veteran families that are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
