United States Department of Veterans Affairs - Homeless Veterans Program: HUD-VASH Program and Housing Assistance For VeteransThe United States Department of Veterans Affairs is committed to ending Veteran homelessness by the end of 2015. No one who has served our country should ever go without a safe, stable place to call home. The entire department has put its energy and resources into ending Veteran homelessness. VA's programs provide individualized, comprehensive care to Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Housing assistance for homeless Veterans and their families is available through several federal programs. HUD-VASH Program The Department of Housing and Urban Development – VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program is a joint effort between HUD and VA to move Veterans and their families out of homelessness and into permanent housing. HUD provides housing assistance through its Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) that allows homeless Veterans to rent privately owned housing. VA offers eligible homeless Veterans clinical and supportive services through its health care system across the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. As of September 30, 2013, HUD had allocated funding to local public housing authorities to provide more than 58,000 Housing Choice Vouchers to homeless Veterans while VA hired dedicated VA case managers to assist homeless Veterans in securing and maintaining permanent housing through intensive case management. The Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program The Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program funds community-based agencies providing transitional housing or service centers for homeless Veterans. Through the program, each year (as funding is available) VA offers grants that may fund up to 65 percent of the project for the construction, acquisition or renovation of facilities or to purchase vans to provide outreach and services to homeless Veterans. Acquired Property Sales for Homeless Providers Program VA’s Acquired Property Sales for Homeless Providers Program makes all the properties VA obtains through foreclosures on VA-insured mortgages available for sale to homeless provider organizations to shelter homeless Veterans. The mortgages are offered at a discount of 20 to 50 percent, based on how long the property has been listed for sale.
