Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH)
The HUD-VASH Program combines HUD’s long-term rental assistance with ongoing VA case management and clinical services. HUD-VASH helps homeless veterans obtain housing. The Housing Office is responsible for determining eligibility for rental assistance, issuing the voucher, processing the leasing and making monthly housing assistance payments to landlords.
Who is eligible for the HUD-VASH Program?
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/relatives or have had past periods of homelessness. If veterans need help finding housing, we will try to help them even if they don’t qualify for this specific program.
How does the veteran apply for the HUD-VASH Program?
The VA screens and selects veterans for the program.
