Agencies team up to aid thousands of homeless vets | HousingWire

The Department of Housing and Urban Development teamed up with the Department of Veteran Affairs to provide 9,000 homeless veterans a permanent place to call home.

The supportive housing assistance announced will provide $60 million to local public housing agencies across the country to provide permanent supportive housing to homeless veterans.

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services provided by the VA.

HUD-VASH is a critical component of the Obama Administration’s commitment to end veteran and long-term chronic homelessness by 2015.

Shaun Donovan, secretary of HUD, and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki announced this additional support for homeless veterans in an address to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans Annual Conference Wednesday in Washington.
