The HCV VASH program provides Voucher rental assistance specifically for qualifying homeless veterans. This program is also funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The VASH program, through a cooperative partnership, provides long-term case management, supportive services and permanent housing support. HUD’s strategy includes local and state partners in the public and private sectors building upon the lesson that mainstream housing, health, education, and supportive services be fully engaged and coordinated to prevent and end homelessness.
Eligible homeless Veterans receive VA provided case management and supportive services to support stability and recovery from physical and mental health, substance use, and functional concerns contributing to or resulting from homelessness. The program goals include promoting Veteran recovery and independence to sustain permanent housing in the community for the Veteran and the Veteran’s family.
