HUD Announces Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration

May 01, 2012 Print ShareThis

HUD, in partnership with the departments of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Labor (DOL), recently 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.

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers (VAMCs) and community-based outreach clinics. A resource guide for the HUD-VASH program was designed to provide case managers, social workers, treatment specialists, program managers, and other clinicians who work with homeless Veterans through the HUD-VASH program with a comprehensive set of resources. The guide includes a wide range of information such as useful tools, exercises, worksheets, and links to other homelessness resources and programs.
