Housing & Supportive Services for Veterans

Through flexible programming, innovative community planning, dedicated resources, and enhanced data coordination, many communities have achieved and sustained the Federal Criteria and Benchmarks for Ending Homelessness among Veterans, and have made other significant strides. These efforts have tested promising service and housing approaches among Veterans that are now being used to transform local homeless crisis response systems for other subpopulations and overall.
