This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs on July 28, 2021. From the Bill Summary: "S. 2172 would require the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to increase payment rates for programs that assist homeless veterans with housing, job training, and other supportive services. In addition, the bill would increase authorizations for employment service grants from the Department of Labor (DOL). The bill also would require VA to institute three pilot programs to provide grants to entities that offer services to homeless veterans involving treatment for substance use disorders, access to health care, and transportation assistance. In total, CBO estimates, implementing the bill would cost $990 million over the 2022-2026 period. That spending would be subject to appropriation of the estimated amounts."
