A special Housing Choice (Section 8) rental assistance program that specifically helps homeless veterans and their families is now available. The program – Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) – provides permanent housing subsidies and case management, clinical and supportive services to homeless veterans with significant case management needs. The VA screens homeless veterans for program eligibility, determines that participating veterans are medically stabilized, and provides case management services to enrollees.
Because you own or manage rental property and/or are interested in supporting our veterans, we invite you to consider participating in this program.
Participating in the VASH program offers many benefits and safeguards:
- Participants enrolled in the VASH program have different levels of needs. Bay Pines VASH staff and the Pinellas County Housing Authority will work with you to match you with a tenant you’re comfortable with.
- You can help keep up your occupancy rate by participating in this program, particularly at a time when rental vacancies are expected to increase. Additionally, you can be assured that rent will be paid in a timely manner and that you have a stable income stream.
- Your participation is an investment in ending homelessness in Pinellas County.
