Homelessness & Housing

By November 20, 2015

The Homelessness & Housing Working Group brings together agencies and organizations who are working to ensure that every service member, veteran, and their families have access to shelters in emergencies and affordable housing in the long-term.

Current and Future Initiatives of the Homelessness & Housing Working Group

  • Generating a resource listing of all the regional Continuums of Care, and connecting veteran housing providers with these communities.
  • Developing a unified screening process for veteran homeless providers.
  • Fostering a better understanding of how Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) grants are awarded and educating the Landlord Association on how to leverage the HUD-VASH program.
  • Engaging with local housing authorities to encourage channeling of development funds toward affordable housing for veterans.
