The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers (VAMCs) and community-based outreach clinics.
HUD VASH vouchers are rental vouchers used specifically for homeless veterans. Currently the Columbia Housing Authority has received 85 VASH vouchers. Families are determined eligible through the Department of Veterans Affairs and sent as a referral to the Columbia Housing Authority for rental assistance. The VA is responsible for determining the eligibility of the veterans and the Columbia Housing Authority is responsible for determining income eligibility. The family is required to receive case management services from the VA until the VA determines it is no longer necessary. Families who do not comply with the case management service will be terminated from the HUD-VASH program.
If you are a homeless veteran, please contact Department of Veterans Affairs, Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital at 1-800-349-8262 or visit their web-site http://www.columbiamo.va.gov/
