VA Doesn't Renew Grant To CASS For Veteran Needs At Shelter

Later Tuesday, demonstrators will be outside of Central Arizona Shelter Services, or CASS, to protest the Department of Veterans Affairs' decision not to renew a grant it had been giving to CASS.

The money comes from the Veterans Affairs Grant Per Diem program and pays for veteran-specific needs at the shelter.

Joining us now to talk about this program and what the loss of funding means is Mark Holleran, CEO of CASS.
