Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH)
The HUD-VASH program is a partnership between the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs. This supported housing program provides permanent housing, long-term case management and supportive services to eligible Veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Case management services may include activities such as: care coordination with the VA Medical Center, money management skill development, and facilitation of tenant-landlord communication, in addition to other services focused on the Veteran’s housing stability.
The HUD-VASH program has had significant positive impacts on Veteran homelessness. This program has been designed to maintain previously homeless Veterans in safe, permanent, independent housing situations in the community, while concurrently addressing those concerns that may threaten the stability of the Veteran’s housing.
Veterans approved to receive Section 8 rent assistance vouchers search for rental units in the community of their choice. When approved by a landlord and the local housing authority, they can enter into a 12-month lease agreement and pay approximately 30% of their income toward rent and utilities.
