HUD & VA Launch New Demonstration Program to Provide Homes to Homeless American Indians Veterans

 


WASHINGTON – For the first time ever, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are launching a demonstration program to offer a permanent home and supportive services to Native American Veterans who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. The Tribal HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (Tribal HUD-VASH) Program will combine $4 million in rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services provided by VA to serve approximately 600 Native American Veterans.

HUD Secretary Julián Castro announced this new demonstration program during a speech to the 72nd Annual Convention of the National Congress of American Indians in San Diego.
