Veterans Housing and Employment Improvement Act of 2005

Location: Washington, DC

VETERANS HOUSING AND EMPLOYMENT IMPROVEMENT ACT OF 2005 -- (House of Representatives - November 09, 2005)


Mr. BRADLEY of New Hampshire. Madam Speaker, I thank the chairman and the ranking minority member for their hard work to a make this bill a reality.

Madam Speaker, I rise in support of the Veterans Housing Improvement Act, H.R. 3665. All of us, as Members of Congress, have had the opportunity to meet our brave soldiers who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, fighting in the war on terror. One of the components of the war on terror is that many of them are coming home with disabling injuries.

This bill in a very significant way will help families to be able to allow the reintegration of these disabled heroes back into not only working life, but at-home life. The $10,000 grant will help home owners to be able to renovate their houses to make them suitable for disabled veterans, and that is why it is so important that we authorize and fund this pilot program to do what needs to be done to help these heroes integrate back into life.

I thank the chairman and the ranking member for their hard work and urge my colleagues to support this bill.
