Associated Press – Gov. Deval Patrick has announced more than $25 million to create over 335 new units of supportive housing for veterans, homeless and very low income families.

Patrick made the announcement Tuesday during a stop at the site of a planned veterans’ housing project in Haverhill.

Patrick says his administration is making good a year early on a promise to create 1,000 new units of permanent, supportive housing.

Supportive housing is designed to help individuals and families who are homeless or facing homelessness, people with disabilities, and the elderly.

The money will help fund 16 projects across Massachusetts and comes from a housing trust fund in last year’s state budget and capital funding.

Patrick also awarded more than 200 new vouchers Tuesday to let homeless families move into existing housing developments with long-term affordability restrictions.
