Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson says a nonprofit organization based in Sioux Falls is receiving a federal grant of more than $1 million to help homeless military veterans move from the streets into homes.

Johnson says the Volunteers of America, Dakotas will use the grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to support 25 homeless veterans a day.

The senator is chairman of the Senate Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee. He says one of his top priorities is to make sure all veterans have a place to call home.
