The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) today announced $18.5 million to 39 local public housing agencies across the country to provide a permanent home to an estimated 2,100 veterans experiencing homelessness.
The supportive housing assistance announced today is provided through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program which combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services provided by VA.
The HUD-VASH Project Based Vouchers (PBVs) being awarded today are attached to specific existing, new construction or rehabilitated units. These vouchers will preserve affordable housing and ensure that persons who need services to live stably in their own homes receive them.
