The U.S. Department Veterans Affairs and Veterans Matter, a program that provides security deposits to homeless Veterans in 14 states and the District of Columbia, have announced that they have helped 1,500 Veterans exit homelessness and move into permanent housing. Veterans Matter provides security deposits to homeless Veterans who qualify for rental subsidies from the joint U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. Once Veterans are housed through the HUD-VASH program, VA case managers can connect them to other supportive services, such as employment assistance, health care, mental health treatment and substance use counseling. To date, HUD-VASH has allocated more than 88,000 housing vouchers nationwide.
