Real progress in helping homeless veterans

This week marks the 20th anniversary of enactment into law on December 21, 2001 of the Homeless Veterans Comprehensive Assistance Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-95)—the historic, comprehensive law I authored to create a whole-of-government approach to mitigate and ultimately end veterans homelessness.

Twenty years ago, approximately 300,000 veterans on any given night were experiencing homelessness in the United States.
