The Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program provides rental assistance to homeless Veterans and their families in combination with case management and clinical services through the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) of Boise.

The Boise VAMC screens applicants for program eligibility and service needs and refers clients to the Housing Authority for rental assistance. The Housing Authority determines eligibility for rental assistance in accordance with HUD-VASH regulations.

What are the main requirements in order to qualify for this program?

Veterans who are eligible must be VAMC healthcare eligible and be homeless. The VAMC makes these eligibility determinations. If these requirements are met, the next requirement is that the Veteran must agree to case management services in order to obtain and sustain independent housing in the community. Veterans who need case management services may have serious mental illness, substance use disorder history, or a physical disability.

If you are determined to be eligible, you would be expected to participate in case management and to utilize the supportive services, treatment recommendations, and assistance needed to successfully sustain housing in the community. Case management is the heart of this program and it is a requirement for participation in the HUD-VASH voucher program.

How do you apply for this program?

To apply for HUD-VASH, please contact your local VAMC Homeless Program – Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) at (208) 422-1039. The Housing Authority does not determine eligibility for VASH.
