HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing

Placer County Housing Authority supports local and federal efforts to end homelessness among Placer County veterans. We encourage landlords to participate in our Housing Choice Voucher Program to help achieve this goal of providing a home to veterans who have served our country. HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) combines the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for homeless veterans. The VA provides these services for participating veterans at VA medical centers (VAMC’s) and community based outreach clinics.
