Funding & Operating Expensesadmin
Preserve Vets Incorporated will apply for government grants, such as those provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the National Coalitions for Homeless Veterans, and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Our funding will come from other nonprofits, faith-based and community organizations, and business and philanthropic sources, local, state and national. Funding will also come from the homeless themselves, as they contribute their own efforts and income toward building and maintaining the housing and infrastructure of the facility. All of the initial pre-development costs, including the website, will come from donation or pledges.
