HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

More than $2 million dollars in grant money from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs has been awarded to the state to help homeless and at-risk veterans.

The money will be awarded to Catholic Charities Hawaii and the United States Veterans Initiatives.

"It is a national travesty to see these brave men and women, who once wore the uniform to serve our country, homeless and on the streets," said Hanabusa. "We as a country must do all we can to honor their service and provide them with the support they need to transition back to civilian life."

Representative Hanabusa says the money will help with housing assistance and services like mental health care.
