Montana to receive $325K for homeless veterans

   HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Montana's two U.S. senators say the state will receive
$325,181 in housing vouchers for homeless veterans.
   Democratic Sens. Jon Tester and Max Baucus announced the grant Thursday, a
day after the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and U.S. Housing and Urban
Development announced they will give $60 million to local public housing agencies
nationwide.
   The senators say to receive permanent, independent community housing, veterans
must qualify for VA health care, be homeless and participate in case management
services.
   Tester says returning veterans' success requires a safe place to live so they can find
work, go to school and care for themselves.
