Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System
Homeless Program - Permanent Housing
The Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supported Housing (HUD-VASH) program provides supportive housing assistance to homeless Veterans and their families.
To be eligible for this program, the Veteran must be:
- Currently homeless or imminently homeless (documented as being homeless within 14 days)
- Meet financial eligibility guidelines established by HUD for the region
- Have a case management need
- Be willing to participate in on-going case management services
This innovative project promotes a team approach to ending homelessness. The Veteran works with a public housing authority case worker and VA case manager to actively address the issues that impaired his/her ability to maintain stable housing.
VA offers case management support and community resources to actively address those issues, and the public housing authority offers rental assistance in the selected, eligible unit chosen by the Veteran.
The goal is to help the Veteran obtain AND maintain stable housing for his/her household.
