GOSHEN, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus spoke out against a proposal to deny more than half a million dollars of funding to Hudson River Housing.
“Unfortunately, we often hear of wasteful spending on government programs that don’t work,” Neuhaus said. “The Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF) is a highly successful initiative that is utilized by our veterans. Our veterans need and benefit from this critical program. At a time when our nation’s military continues to face enormous challenges throughout the world, our veterans and servicemen and servicewomen, need to know that their government has their backs. I urge the VA to restore this funding immediately.”
Neuhaus serves as a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy Reserves and is currently assigned to a Naval Special Warfare Group.
If no action is taken, funding will run out and the SSVF initiative will be terminated after Sept. 30.
