He has set a goal of ending veteran homelessness by 2015. He has said the number of homeless veterans fell by 12 percent in 2011. The VA has announced $3.1 million in grants this year for Colorado programs that help homeless veterans. 

Shinseki's visit and the grant announcements come amid intense campaigning in Colorado, considered a swing state in the 2012 presidential race. 

Shinseki also visited Colorado in March, attending a winter sports clinic for veterans and meeting with staff and patients at the Denver VA Medical Center.
