The organization is in discussions with the Springfield Housing Authority to make the remaining nine available to homeless vets in that city.
"There's just not a lot of available units for anybody," says Matthew Moran, Executive Director of the Joplin Housing Authority. "I think we have to go as far as Mt.Vernon and Springfield to find a space that is available," he added.
The Springfield city council is expected to make a decision in the next couple of weeks. If approved, the vouchers will be available soon after.
