Major hurdles remain to end veteran homelessness
Billions more in funds needed
An upcoming report is expected to show the number of homeless veterans has dropped by at least 15,000 since 2009, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki says. Shinseki has promised that the administration will end homelessness among veterans by 2015. But officials and outside experts said that will require more than doubling the current annual progress, and billions more in federal money.
