FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – The Kentucky Housing Corp. says several hundred veterans remain homeless in Kentucky, and it is offering vouchers for housing in many counties.

The agency says it wants to make sure all veterans know about the program known as Veterans Emerging Through Transition and don’t assume they aren’t eligible before contacting a participating agency. Preference is given to qualified veterans regardless of discharge status.

Officials say the process moves quickly once paperwork is finished, with veterans placed in housing in a few months.

The housing agency says it will continue the program until all 100 set-aside vouchers are used. For more information or to apply for assistance, visit http://www.kyhousing.org/Specialized-Housing/Pages/VETT-Vouchers.aspx .
