I noted this on another Usenet group

VA tried to reallocate $460 million earmarked for homeless veterans.
Now it says that won’t happen.

The Department of Veterans Affairs appears to be backtracking on its
divisive plan to reallocate nearly a half-billion dollars from a
successful program to reduce homelessness among former military
personnel, bowing to pressure from lawmakers and advocacy groups who
criticized the effort as cruel and counterproductive.

The about-face, announced in a statement Wednesday night from VA
Secretary David Shulkin, followed a Washington Post inquiry about the
Trump administration’s effort to divert the funding - totaling $460
million - instead to local VA hospitals for discretionary use. As
Politico first reported, that money had been set aside specifically
for a voucher program, run by VA and the Department of Housing and
Urban Development, that provides long-term living accommodations for
the country’s most vulnerable military veterans, many of whom suffer
from mental illness.
