Are you a Veteran experiencing a housing crisis?

Qualifying Veteran Households are defined by:

1. A Veteran Household:

  • Either (a) a Veteran; or (b) a household in which the head of household, or the spouse of the head of household, is a Veteran. A household can be just the Veteran.
  • The Veteran is a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service, and who was discharged or released therefrom under conditions other than Dishonorable, or Bad Conduct Discharge if issued under a General Court Martial. For Veterans with multiple discharges, the best discharge status may be used for SSVF eligibility.

2. Very-Low Income:

  • Household income does not exceed 50% (very low) of CURRENT area median income HUD table for the appropriate county. Some providers prioritize households with income at or below 30% (extremely low) of area median income. The Area Median Income (AMI) table changes; grantees use the current AMI table at https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/il.html

3. Literally Homeless, or at Imminent Risk of becoming homeless.

  • The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) specializes in programs for homeless Veterans serving hundreds of thousands of homeless and at-risk Veterans each year. Independently and in collaboration with federal and community partners, VA programs provide Veterans with housing solutions, employment opportunities, health care, justice- and reentry-related services and more.
