What is the HUD-VASH Program?
The HUD-VASH Program is a partnership between the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and many local Public Housing Authoritiies (PHA's).
Low-income Veterans who are eligible for HUD-VASH recieve a specialized Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) to be used at the rental of their choosing. In addition to the rental subsidy, eligible Veterans also receive ongoing supportive services from the Community-Based Outpatient Clinic in Wenatchee. Our local HUD-VASH Program currently serves Veterans in the following Counties: Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan and Grant.
How can I get involved with the HUD-VASH Program?
If you are a property owner or manager with available rental units, you can get involved simply by renting to an eligible HUD-VASH Veteran in your area. There are many benefits! Landlords who have worked with the program comment that their HUD-VASH tenants have been extremely "appreciative of the opportunity," and that they are happy to participate. If you would like to help honor our nation's Veterans by renting to a HUD-VASH participant in your area, please contact us at (509)663-7421.
