Homes for homeless veterans

Posted: Updated:

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A nonprofit group based in North Carolina says it's seeking grants to build transitional housing for homeless military veterans in Fayetteville.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Monday that Asheville-based RHA Health Services hopes to get government grants totaling more than $2 million to build 24 efficiency-style apartments for homeless veterans.

Scott Little of RHA says a location hasn't been identified for the apartments. Ideally, he says, they would be located near the Veterans Affairs Medical center. RHA also has proposed a complex in Salisbury, where a Veterans Affairs hospital also is located.

The grants and loans that RHA is seeking have a spring deadline.
