The money goes to 10 local agencies across the state. Nationwide, HUD is providing $18M to support U.S. vets facing or experiencing homelessness.

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded over $18 million in HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) vouchers to 103 Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) in 33 states. The funding supports veterans experiencing homelessness.

In Florida, 10 local agencies have been allocated over $2 million ($2,021,110) of that money, or about 11% of the total.

Florida HUD-VASH recipients

  • West Palm Beach Housing: $97,690
  • Housing Authority of the City of Lakeland: $60,370
  • Housing Authority of the City of Miami Beach: $181,395

The round of allocations will support 2,050 HUD-VASH vouchers nationally, bringing the total number of current HUD-VASH vouchers to 106,704.

The HUD-VASH program provides housing and support services to veterans experiencing homelessness by combining rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

“The HUD-VA Supportive Housing program (VASH) has been a flagship of HUD and VA’s effort to end veteran homelessness,” says HUD Deputy Secretary Adrianne Todman. “Since its inception, VASH has helped tens of thousands of veterans move from homelessness into permanent housing and receive supportive services along the way.”
