Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada (RTSNV), a nonprofit organization that provides critical home repairs to individuals in need at no cost, announced available funding for low-income veterans with disabilities through its Veterans at Home program.
Veterans at Home provides free home modifications and critical repairs to low-income veterans with disabilities living in the City of Henderson, Unincorporated Clark County, Laughlin, Mesquite and Pahrump. To learn more, please contact RTSNV at 702-259-4900 or firstname.lastname@example.org and visit their website at rtsnv.org.
According to U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 50% of the U.S. veteran population is 65 years and older, many of whom live below the poverty line. Since 2010, Rebuilding Together affiliates across the country have completed more than 11,200 rebuild projects for veteran homeowners and their families. The repairs are provided at no cost to those in need who are often faced with diminishing resources.
“We’re working to make sure that all low-income homeowners, including veterans, have a safe and healthy place to call home,” said RTSNV Executive Director Bob Cleveland. “Through our work with HUD and the Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification program we are able to address the needs of eligible veterans to live safely and independently in their home.”
RTSNV is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), through grants provided by the Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification pilot (VHRMP) program.
