County to Receive Seven U.S Department of Housing and Urban Develop (HUD) Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) Vouchers


Montgomery County will be awarded seven U.S Department of Housing and Urban Develop (HUD) Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) vouchers in 2017. The HUD-VASH voucher program combines Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers and community-based outreach clinics.

The Commission joined by the offices of Congressman Van Hollen and Senator Ben Cardin began working on receiving HUD-VASH vouchers in 2009. Montgomery County has been awarded a total of 93 HUD-VASH vouchers since 2010. The County’s Housing Opportunities Commission plays an important role in supporting Veterans in need of HUD-VASH vouchers.
