H.R.95: Homeless Veteran Families Act
The Homeless Veteran Families Act (H.R. 95) would expand the per diem payment amount for a homeless veteran who has care of a minor dependent on the daily cost of care plus, for each minor dependent, an amount that equals 50% of such daily cost of care. CBO estimates that the Veterans Administration would pay an average of $4,000 more per person for roughly 600 veterans with minor dependents annually. Implementing this bill would cost $14 million over the 2020-2024 period.
