Vets@Home HUD technical assistance helps Continuums of Care (CoCs) meet the goal established in Opening Doors of ending veteran homelessness by December 31, 2015. As part of Vets@Home technical assistance, a series of four toolkits have been developed as guides and resources for use by CoCs as they work to end homelessness for veterans. The toolkits can be used together or individually.
View the toolkits:
The toolkits include identification of best practices, key strategies, action items and considerations for CoCs, Veterans Affairs (VA) partners, and local public officials that can be implemented immediately to focus efforts on ending homelessness for veterans.
Any CoC may receive TA through Vets@Home. To do so, a CoC should submit a TA request through the HUD Exchange’s Request Technical Assistance form. HUD will provide all CoCs requesting TA though Vets@Home with remote TA.
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.
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.
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.
