Learn more about Veteran Housing
The 2014 Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Bond Act will redirect $600 million from a 2008 bond to build multi-family housing for veterans. The 2008 bond gave funds directly to veterans to buy homes but was put on hold due to the recession and the vast depreciation of the housing market. See recent veteran housing news

Yes, but spend less and they have to serve a certain amount of time in the military or have a great act of service. 4 years ago from a Republican in Lincoln, CA
The term "Veteran" is not sufficient to warrant large amounts of government aid. Deserving veterans, those with exposure to the dangers of combat should be given all that they need.,. 4 years ago from a Republican in Valley Springs, CA
I would have to see how the property is going to be managed. I would rather they put the money into helping veterans acquire skills that will help them get a job or provide for themselves. If they cannot provide for themselves then we should pay for them... 4 years ago from a Republican in Coronado, CA
No, the vets have the Cal-Vet Program for housing and it works. The state should not be in the house building business, the private sector businesses will build it if there is a demand for it and Cal-Vet will supply loans for the Vets. 4 years ago from a Republican in Baldwin Park, CA

Veterans can apply for VA LOANS. However I believe those coming back from a war or conflict zone that are missing limb or sight, burns requiring multiple surgeries should be helped further with affordable housing. 5 years ago from a Republican in Sacramento, CA
No, the money should be used for its original legislative purpose (to allow vets to buy homes). This sounds like a boondoggle for a housing developer. 5 years ago from a Republican in Pasadena, CA
No use the housing on closed bases for that it should cost less it already built. 5 years ago from a Republican in Sacramento, CA
The state of CA needs to get rid of its debts so we can look at projects like this realistically.
We need to evaluate all of those projects which seem to be bankrupting the state. Of course it would be wonderful to help the veterans but supplying good... 5 years ago from a Republican in Brisbane, CA
I support assistance for vets but I don't support any prevailing wage spending. If we could get responsible contractors to bid jobs at realistic wages, yes I could support this. 5 years ago from a Republican in Woody, CA
Yes, after balancing the state budget. 5 years ago from a Republican in El Segundo, CA
For centuries men went to war, came back and resumed their lives without help - it was duty. The only ones who should be helped are those with crippling injuries. The "veteran thing" has become another victims group. 5 years ago from a Republican in La Puente, CA
Affordable housing is needed for every one not just one group. 5 years ago from a Republican in Camarillo, CA
They should if the spending is done responsibly. The price paid for housing should mirror the actual cost as if a private sector entity was building it. 5 years ago from a Republican in Coronado, CA
Low interest loans should be available to veterans. 5 years ago from a Republican in San Marino, CA
"Multi-family?" What the hell does that mean. I support out vets, but this question is questionable. 5 years ago from a Republican in Palmdale, CA
We should assist with housing but spending money to build new when we have so many empty homes sitting empty we should look at finding a an affordable way to fund them living in existing homes already built. 5 years ago from a Republican in Emeryville, CA
NO, This is a Federal obligation. 5 years ago from a Republican in Venice, CA
