AIR DATE: April 5, 2011

Congress is looking to save money, and a housing program for veterans might get the axe.  HUD-VASH subsidizes housing for veterans.  Cuts might leave up to 10,000 veterans short of housing nationwide.  Around 600 homeless veterans use the program in Las Vegas.  So who would end up on the street if this program gets cut?  Where do homeless vets typically find shelter in Las Vegas?  We talk to homeless veterans about life on the street, and to local programs about what they're doing to find housing with looming cuts.

GUESTS Larry Williams, program manager, US VETS Joanne Knighton, homeless Air Force veteran
