Supportive housing for homeless veterans

Veterans Affairs Supported Housing (HUD-VASH) | U.S Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), U.S Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

1. How it Works

HUD-VASH helps veterans and their families who are homeless find and keep permanent housing. Veterans get a Section 8 rental voucher that helps pay for a place to live. VA case managers can also connect veterans with other supportive services.

  • You must contribute 30% of your monthly income towards rent. The voucher will cover the rest.
  • You must re-certify each year to keep your housing voucher.
  • Case management is an important part of the program, and you will need to participate.

2. Determine your eligibility

To be eligible for HUD-VASH, you must:

  • be eligible for VA health care.
  • be homeless.
  • have income within the program guidelines.
  • be willing to receive case management from the VA.
