vAOIG–EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HOMELESS BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK


Here’s another OIG boondoggle that would make the Pope proud. Now that we know the how and why, we can cure the problem, right? Well…..not exactly. This far more complicated than we know and will require another $100,000.00 study and a trip to Maui to study the vA homeless contingent there and on Lanai.

    This little gem was well buried:

    “Homeless veterans were more likely to receive compensation for service-connected disabilities and receive higher disability ratings. Over half (51–62 percent) of the homeless veterans were receiving VA compensation for their service-connected disabilities at the end of the study, higher than their domiciled counterparts (35–40 percent). Even prior to their first homeless episode, 46–59 percent of the homeless veterans were receiving VA compensation

    “The findings are new, and they are surprising in that a higher (46–59) percent of the homeless veterans than their domiciled (35–40 percent) counterparts (at the end of the study) had access to some stable and seemingly moderate funds before their first homeless episode to prevent becoming homeless. More studies are called for to investigate the relationship between service-connected disability payments and their impact on homelessness.”

    “We are going to do more studies to see if compensating veterans for their disabilities will allow them to stay in their homes…We will get back to you, Aloha!”

    And so the ostrich sticks it’s head back into the sand. That must be too much reading for Usec Hickey. Poor thing! She wants those ruby slippers oh sooooo badly! 🙂
