HUD-VASH is a collaborative program between CMHA and the Veteran’s Administration (VA) which combines HUD housing vouchers with VA supportive services to help Veterans and their families who are homeless find and sustain permanent housing. HUD provides rental assistance vouchers for privately owned housing to Veterans who are eligible for VA health care services and are experiencing homelessness. VA case managers may connect these Veterans with support services such as health care, mental health treatment and substance use counseling to help them in their recovery process and with their ability to maintain housing in the community. This program operates under most of the same rules that pertain to the HCV Vouchers.
Among VA homeless continuum of care programs, HUD-VASH enrolls the largest number and largest percentage of Veterans who have experienced long-term or repeated homelessness. At the end of FY 2019, there were 90,749 Veterans with active HUD-VASH vouchers and 83,684 vouchers in use.
CMHA is proud to partner with the Veteran’s Administration to provide subsidy to 40 veteran families through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program. If you are interested in being a landlord on this program or if you know of a veteran who might benefit from this program, please contact LeQuita Potter at 513-977-6829.
