HUD VASH (Veterans Affairs Supported Housing)
The VAMC is responsible for program marketing and outreach. SFHRC will not maintain a waiting list of households interested in the HUD-VASH program. SFHRC will refer households who appear to be veterans who are homeless to the VAMC as potential eligible participants of the HUD-VASH program.
After the VAMC has completed its screening process it will refer HUD-VASH eligible households to SFHRC. SFHRC will not have a role in determining if the veteran has a less than honorable discharge, the household's homeless status or any other screening criteria.
In order to participate in the HUD-VASH program the household's income must be at or below 50% of the area median income for the household's size and cannot be subject to a lifetime registration requirement under any states sex offender registry program.
If eligible to participate in this program the veteran will be issued a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher which will allow her/him to receive rental assistance in the unit of their choice, that meets HUDs criteria.
Veterans who are homeless and interested in applying for the HUD-VASH program must contact The Homless Outreach Program at the VAMC by calling 605.336.3230.
