A Senate lawmaker wants the Hoosier Lottery to create a new scratch-off game to benefit homeless veterans.
Sen. Ron Alting’s (R-Lafayette) bill would allow the Hoosier Lottery to create a new scratch-off game. Money from the game would go into a Veterans Homelessness Assistance Fund, created by the bill.
Alting says those dollars would flow, via grants, to organizations that help homeless veterans.
“It goes for temporary housing and yes it goes for clothing and yes it can go for hygiene and yes it can go for medical expense and so forth,” Alting says.
