What is the VASH Voucher program?
The VASH (Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing) voucher program is for homeless veterans. It pairs Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance with case management and supportive services. The rental assistance is provided by a housing authority and the supportive services are offered through the local VA.
How does a veteran get a VASH Voucher?
First, a veteran must get screened by a county Veterans Service Officer. During the screening the veteran completes a Release of Information Form, and military status is confirmed. Then a veteran is referred to a local housing authority to obtain rental assistance.
