HUD VASH provides rental assitance for veterans to obtain permanent housing with support services.

Tenant Eligibility Criteria

Veterans and their families who meet the federal definition of homelessness, were honorably discharged and are determined by the local VA Medical Center (VAMC) to need case management services in order to obtain and sustain their housing.


The VASH subsidy operates in accordance with Section 8 regulations (24 CFR 982.201). Tenants pay 30% of their income in rent and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides housing assistance payments directly to the landlord for the difference between the tenant's share of the rent and the fair market rent (FMR) for that locality.


Voucher holders maintain their voucher as long as they remain income eligible, receive ongoing case management from the local VAMC (or contracted provider) and do not violate Section 8 restrictions. HUD VASH vouchers are tenant based and portable so the voucher follows the tenant if they move out of the building.
