WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today awarded more than $5 million to 42 local public housing authorities across the country that are working aggressively to end veteran homelessness. HUD is awarding additional funds to help these housing authorities administer a joint program with HUD and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) which provides permanent homes and needed services to veterans experiencing long-term, chronic homelessness (see local funding below).

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program works to reduce veteran homelessness because it provides funding for both the housing and supportive services that are essential for ending homelessness for tens of thousands of veterans nationwide. The additional funds awarded today will help these PHAs continue their extraordinary efforts to house veterans in an expedited manner.

“These housing authorities are going above and beyond in the movement to end veteran homelessness,” said Lourdes Castro-Ramirez, HUD’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing. “Today we reward those who are out there doing the heavy lifting to find real and lasting housing solutions for veterans who might otherwise be living on our streets.”

The local PHAs receiving these extraordinary fees are undertaking aggressive efforts to house veterans in an expedited manner. The agencies are also launching robust marketing campaign and hosting Landlord Fairs to recruit landlords/property owners to participate in the program. In addition these agencies are hiring temporary staff to provide additional housing search assistance, expedite processing of documentation, inspect units, issue vouchers, and execute leases.


HUD’s mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
