Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program
The U.S. Department of Urban Development Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program combines HUD’s long-term rental assistance with ongoing U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) case management and clinical services. HUD-VASH helps homeless veterans obtain housing. The Baltimore County Office of Housing is responsible for determining eligibility for rental assistance, issuing the voucher, processing the leasing and making monthly housing assistance payments to landlords.
The HUD-VASH Program targets homeless veterans with incomes at or below 50 percent of the area median income. Veterans’ discharge status must be other than dishonorable. Veterans can qualify for this program even if they are staying with friends or relatives or have had past periods of homelessness. If veterans need help finding housing, assistance will be provided even if they do not qualify for the HUD-VASH program.
How to Apply
The VA screens and selects veterans for the program.
