As part of its work, the NLC will create tool kits, compile best practices, and provide local officials with learning opportunities such as education programs at the NLC's national conferences, in partnership with a network of state leagues of cities and through a member-based group of city officials representing military communities. This new endeavor is designed to help cities address the housing needs of veterans while also providing innovations and efficiencies such as improving facilities for veteran housing.

‘We are committed to ensuring that every veteran has a safe place to call home,’ says Kelly Caffarelli, president of the Home Depot Foundation.
