LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A federal voucher program is continuing the Lafayette Housing Authority's mission to end homelessness.

LHA was awarded 35 additional vouchers to support homeless veterans and the non-elderly disabled. It's in addition to the more than 1,200 already allocated, and it helps with rent and other clinical services.

Performance data is one of the factors HUD uses to determine which agencies are picked.

LHA is one of only 5 agencies in Indiana to get the vouchers.

"Lafayette Housing Authority encourages partnerships with other area support agencies," said the city of Lafayette's Marketing and Communications Director Patty Payne. "Their work has been recognized by the federal government. That is why they were awarded these vouchers."

The new vouchers are the first mainstream vouchers received locally in more than15 years.
