VHPD was a three year program, completed in January 2015. HUD, Veterans Affairs (VA), and the Department of Labor (DOL) partnered together to provide HUD housing assistance, VA case management services, and DOL employment counseling in five selected communities. All five 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. One of the program’s primary objectives was to provide combined early intervention services for veterans who were at a high risk of becoming homeless, particularly veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and women veterans.
