Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program
The Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Public Law 111-8) enacted March 11, 2009, provided $75 million dollars of funding for the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program. The VASH program, which combines rental assistance and supportive services, was created to assist homeless veterans and their families.
Since 2009, the Federal government has approved additional funding for the VASH program and HACoLA. HACoLA partners with the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) of Greater Los Angeles to administer the program.
Supportive services are provided by the VAMC. The VAMC will screen applicants for program eligibility and service needs and will refer clients to the HACoLA for rental assistance. The HACoLA will determine eligibility for rental assistance in accordance with VASH regulations.
