Through a cooperative partnership, HUD and the Department of Veterans Affairs provide long-term case management, supportive services and permanent housing support through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program (HUD-VASH).
Eligible homeless veterans receive VA provided case management and supportive services to maintain stability and recovery from physical and mental health, substance use and functional concerns contributing to or resulting from homelessness.
HUD has provided "Housing Choice" Section 8 vouchers designated for HUD-VASH to IHA to assist with their rental payments. The program’s goal includes promoting maximal veteran recovery and independence to sustain permanent housing in the community for the veteran and their family.
This program was designed to address the needs of the most vulnerable homeless veterans. Veterans must be VA Health Care eligible, homeless and participate in case management services in order to obtain and sustain permanent independent community housing.
Landlords interested in leasing their rental units to HUD-VASH Voucher participants may contact the agency’s director to obtain additional information about special lease-up procedures.
