The city of Phoenix has been awarded 585 vouchers to provide housing to homeless veterans under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH). This program combines HUD Housing Choice Voucher Program rental assistance for homeless veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC).

The case managers at the local VAMC are responsible for referring eligible homeless veterans to the city -- and so any interested homeless veterans should contact their local VAMC directly.

If you are a homeless veteran and want to be connected to VA services and programs and other community services call 1-877- 4AID VET (877-424-3838).

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton also is working on several initiatives to assist veterans with housing and other issues. Visit the Mayor's Veterans webpage for more information.
