According to Oregon Housing and Community Services, the money is "immediately available" The press release announcing the grants to 18 agencies around the state, including YCAP, begins this way:

$350,000 Immediately Available to Help Homeless Veterans
SALEM – Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) in partnership with the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs is pleased to announce
the release of $350,000 in resources to provide immediate assistance for Oregon’s homeless veterans.

Also, I think you must have your caps lock on. You might take a look.

Maybe I don't understand the distribution process fully, but $6,500 is only 1.85% of the $350,000 total.......Does that seem low?

I agree, tagup. That seems low, even allowing for the fact that many of the 18 probably serve Portland, Salem and Eugene, or their suburban fringes, where the population is substantially larger. That struck me straight off.
