Housing and Urban Development Expands Resources to Fight Veterans Homelessness

A recent boost in funding, from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to its Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program (HUD-VASH), is hoping to benefit more than 10,000 homeless veterans across the U.S.

The HUD-VASH program is designed to provide veterans with permanent housing options, case management, and supportive services to insure they have a stable place for themselves and their families to live. HUD has allocated $72.6 million in new funding to help expand and support these services to our military families.

Obtaining permanent housing is a struggle many veterans face, especially those who are disabled due to their service. They cannot afford housing considering their disability may keep them from working. Many disabled veterans can suffer extra burdens to their health when they are unable to find permanent housing to take care of their needs.

While any veteran can seek assistance through the HUD or Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), disabled veterans can often obtain expanded resources when they apply and qualify for veterans disability benefits. Help can be found through a trusted disability attorney when you want the veterans’ disability benefits application process to be handled properly.

If you are a disabled veteran who has been denied disability compensation or have not yet applied for benefits from the VA, a South Florida disability attorney from Veterans Help Group is ready to help.
