The Tribal HUD-VA Supportive Housing program (Tribal HUD-VASH) will provide rental assistance and supportive services to Native American veterans who are Homeless or At Risk of Homelessness living on or near a reservation or other Indian areas. In its initial funding round, HUD is making available $5.2 million in grant funding to Indian tribes and tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs) to fund this rental assistance and associated administrative fees. Indian tribes and TDHEs participating in this program must partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide case management and supportive services to eligible Native American veterans.Learn how the Tribal Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program helps homeless Native American Veterans exit homelessness.
