New HUD-VASH Vouchers Available for CT Veterans

Office of Governor Dannel P. Malloy

The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have announced that additional rental vouchers totaling $475,900 will be given to Connecticut public housing agencies to help 54 Veterans find permanent supportive housing. These vouchers are being provided through the HUD-VA Supportive Housing Program (HUD-VASH). The HUD-VASH program combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services from VA.

Governor Malloy, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, and all seven of Connecticut’s Congressional delegation commended the federal funding.
“Our veterans deserve our support, and these efforts are bringing us a great deal closer to building stronger communities and a stronger workforce,” said Governor Malloy. “Stable housing, a connection to career supports, and other services are critical to community reintegration,” added Lt. Governor Wyman.

Governor Malloy’s Administration has joined President Obama’s Administration’s goal of ending homelessness among Veterans by the end of 2015.
