CoCs should report the total number of VASH vouchers available for use on the designated night of the HIC and PIT count, regardless of whether or not the voucher is presently being used. CoCs should contact their local housing authority or VA medical center that administers the VASH vouchers to determine the total number of vouchers available in the CoC. When a single program operates in multiple CoCs, each CoC should have program descriptor data pertaining to that program in their HMIS; beds should be apportioned according to which CoC they are physically located in. Vouchers are designated for use in a particular geographic location; vouchers that were funded but unused on the night of the HIC should be included within the CoC where they are designated for use.
