Ending Veteran Homelessness

Posted:

On March 2010, the House of Representative passed without amendment the End Veteran Homelessness Act of 2010.

The important End Veteran Homelessness Act extends through FY2010, increasing the amount and the authorization of appropriations for Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) comprehensive service programs that help homeless veterans and work to prevent homelessness among veterans.

End Veteran Homelessness Act of 2010 revises the provisions concerning payments for providing services for homeless veterans, directing the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to annually adjust the rate of veterans' payments to reflect anticipated changes in the cost of furnishing services and to take into account the cost of providing services in a particular geographic area.

The Act also directs the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to make payments to qualified veterans quarterly, while requiring quarterly statements from veteran recipients on the money expended.

The Secretary will ensure that each VA medical center that provides treatment and services under the supported housing program of the United States Housing Act of 1937, also employs or provides one or more specialists to handle veteran housing program issues as well as to conduct outreach to landlords to encourage and facilitate their participation in this program designed to help veterans remain in their homes.

The Secretary of Veterans Affairs will coordinate with the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide assistance to homeless veterans in accessing HUD's Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program.

Appropriations are authorized for FY2012 and thereafter for VA financial assistance for supportive services for very low-income veteran families occupying permanent housing.

The availability of these VA housing benefits will be advertised by a VA authority in the national media, with a special emphasis on promoting awareness of assistance for homeless women veterans and homeless veterans with children.
