Housing for homeless veterans in Shrewsbury will not only get a face lift, but will soon be able to offer more beds to former servicemen, thanks to state housing program funding to the tune of $3.3 million, according to officials.
Independence Hall is one of nine programs offering housing to low- to moderate-income or homeless people sharing $25.8 million in state and federal subsidies and tax credits, according to the state Department of Housing and Community Development.
It is a 55,000-square-foot facility on South Street in Shrewsbury, owned by Veterans Inc. of Worcester, a private nonprofit organization that offers services to veterans in New England, including housing and support for health and wellness, employment, and training.
