February 20, 2017



WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Jon Tester (D-Mont.), the Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, and Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, are calling on VA Secretary David Shulkin to prioritize helping Native American veterans obtain access to critical housing resources.

Native Americans serve in the military at a higher rate than any other group.  However, they are also at greater risk of homelessness than their veteran peers.
