SLHA to receive funding to place homeless Veterans in affordable housing

The St. Louis Housing Authority (SLHA) will receive $53,202 in federal funds to expand affordable housing access for homeless veterans through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program (HUD-VASH). The funding is part of $16.1 million in new HUD-VASH vouchers allocated to 71 public housing agencies across the country. 

HUD-VASH is a collaborative program which combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV/Section 8) rental assistance with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) case management and supportive services for homeless Veterans. It is designed to provide immediate access to permanent housing for homeless Veterans and their families, as well as clinical services to aid in their journey to self-sufficiency.

“The St. Louis Housing Authority remains committed to ending homelessness among Veterans,” said Alana C. Green, SLHA Executive Director. “Along with the HUD-VASH vouchers, SLHA will offer security deposits to landlords to eliminate delays in the leasing process for our valued Veterans and their families.”

Since 2008, SLHA has issued approximately 300 HUD-VASH vouchers to local Veterans. The new funding will permit the agency to issue an additional 10 vouchers to Veterans in need.

Veterans interested in receiving housing assistance through the HUD-VASH voucher program should contact the St. Louis VASH Program Support Office at (314) 652-4100, extension 55481.
