A homeless shelter is expected to reopen this spring on the grounds of the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Northport.
US Reps. Tom Suozzi, D-Huntington and Lee Zeldin, R-Patchogue, said United Veterans Beacon House has been awarded a 5-year contract to operate the shelter.
The Building 11 shelter failed to pass a safety inspection after extensive renovations. With the completion of repairs, the shelter is expected to reopen in May.
It was closed in January 2018.
