HUD-VASH Boot Camps: Breaking Down Barriers to Care for Homeless Veterans

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program pairs HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance with VA case management and supportive services. These services are designed to help homeless Veterans and their families obtain permanent housing and access the health care, mental health treatment, and other supports necessary to help them improve their quality of life and maintain housing over time.

HUD-VASH Boot Camps bring regional partners together to discuss how they can improve processes, increase voucher utilization, and expand support services to ensure Veterans are moved from homelessness to permanent housing more quickly and efficiently, and that they have the resources they need to remain housed. Thousands of staff from VA, HUD, and local public housing agencies from across the country have attended these boot camps to learn how they can improve their outcomes in the fight to end Veteran homelessness.
