Resources for Homeless Veterans

This page provides resources for veterans looking for housing. This page lists the HUD homeless veteran programs and initiatives, as well as resources, publications, and relevant links to agencies and organizations.

Additionally, as a way to make these programs more easily accessible, local contact information for each program is provided.


Ranging from homeownership to homelessness, this toll free hotline provides information to veterans seeking answers to housing questions. Additionally, the HUDVet website offers general veteran updates, as well as contact information for veteran service providers and federal, state, and city governments. HUDVet National Hotline: 1-877-424-3838.

Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration

HUD, in partnership with the Veterans Administration (VA) and the Department of Labor (DOL), implemented the Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration (VHPD). Through HUD housing assistance, VA case management services, and DOL employment counseling, this three agency partnership provides combined services for veterans who are at a high risk of becoming homeless. All 5 communities participating in this demonstration were strategically selected due to their proximity to a military base, concentration of returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, and availability of resources.

HUD VA Supportive Housing

An essential tool towards ending veteran homelessness, HUD VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) is a joint program between HUD and the VA. HUD provides housing choice vouchers and VA provides case management and outreach. This program targets veterans who are currently homeless.
