Veterans Housing Proposal – Did You Know

Some interesting information from the U. S. Census Bureau related to veterans living in Dennis:

  • Veterans comprise almost 13% of the Dennis population;
  • Veterans comprise twenty-seven percent of the population over 65; 
  • A full 8% of all veterans live below the poverty level of $11,880 for a single person;
  • Of those veterans living below the poverty rate, 48% are disabled.

The veterans housing proposal focuses on the needs of these veterans with a goal of protecting them from homelessness. This home is targeted at populations with incomes well below the typical affordable housing limits.
