Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH)
The case managers at the local Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (VAMC) are responsible for referring eligible homeless veterans to the PHAs. Any interested homeless veteran should contact their local VAMC directly. The Veterans Administration (VA) office will verify the veteran’s homeless status. The PHA is responsible for income and citizenship verifications. The case manager may compile the documents, but the PHA has the final say reading their appropriateness and section 8 eligibility.
To participate in the HUD VASH program an eligible homeless family (which can be one person) would be referred from the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Hampton to the PHA. The PHA will determine if a family is income eligible and screen out lifetime sex-offender registrants.
If a family no longer needs case management as determined by the VAMC, the family is still eligible for rental assistance under the HCV program. In cases where case management is no longer needed, the PHA could use one of its own vouchers, if available, to continue assisting the family and free up a voucher for another HUD-VASH eligible family. If a regular voucher is not available, the family would continue to use the HUD-VASH voucher. If a HUD-VASH voucher is switched to an HCV program, the family is not subject to the PHA’s waiting list. When the veteran dies the voucher will remain with the family.
