American Legion members and others in Pennsylvania and across the country with an interest in aiding Homeless Veterans are encouraged to participate in an on-line project being conducted by the "Home and Garden TV Organization" during the upcoming months of January and February of 2009. In Philadelphia, the American Legion Housing for Homeless Veterans Cororation (HHVC) has partnered with the group "Rebuilding Toghether Philidelphia" (RTP), http://rebuildingphilly.org/ in conjunction with the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP) to provide a proposal and identify recommendations for physical plant improvements to the local homeless veterans facilitiy in Philidelphia's Frankford section operated by HHVC.
With the acceptance of the proposal, Philidelphia has been included with eight (8) other nominated cities for facility improvement grants totaling $115,000. $40,000 will be awarded to the seven (7) other nominated cities based on the merits of their proposals. Among the nominees, there will be no losers and the winners will be the veterans who are residing in the facilities indentified in need of support.
