Project Based Voucher Set-Aside for HUD-VASH Published: Read TAC's Summary
On Tuesday, February 4, 2014, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the publication of a Project Based Voucher (PBV) set-aside funding Notice for the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. Through the competition outlined in this notice, HUD will award approximately $7 million in HUD-VASH funding that will support approximately 1,000 PBV units. These PBVs will enable homeless veterans to access affordable housing with an array of supportive services.
The vouchers are being made available from a set-aside from the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (the Act) (Public Law 113-6), enacted March 26, 2013, that provided approximately $75 million of funding for HUD-VASH vouchers as authorized under section 8(o)(19) of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937.
