A $430,00  grant from the U.S  Department of Veteran Affairs will allow the Central New York Veterans Outreach Center to increase services to veterans and their families.

The center provides services to homeless and at-risk veterans in Oneida, Herkimer, Madison, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.

They currently serve more than 250 veterans and family members each month.

The CNY Veterans Outreach Center is located on Washington Street in downtown Utica.
