Public Housing Agencies Must Register Interest in Receiving HUD-VASH VouchersSeptember, 8, 2017 – The 2017 Appropriations Act provides $40 million in HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) funding that will support approximately 5,500 new HUD-VASH vouchers. HUD has released a notice to identify public housing agencies (PHA) with interest in receiving new HUD-VASH awards. These vouchers will be administered in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and enable homeless veterans and their families to access affordable housing with an array of supportive services.
This year HUD seeks to award tenant-based HUD-VASH to self-identified, interested PHAs based on local need. PHAs must respond to this Notice to be considered for a HUD-VASH award. To read the full notice with all of the requirements, click here
