In 2009, Congress authorized a three-year Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration (VHPD) program to explore ways to increase the housing stability of homelessness and at-risk veterans and their families.

 

Last week, at the tail end of 2015, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released an evaluation of the program that showed it had achieved increased income and employment among its participants. The nation has reduced veteran homelessness by 35 percent using many of the same methods first employed in that program.  Even more strikingly, 76 percent of participating veterans were still living in their own places six months after exiting.

 

The program offered homeless and at risk veterans up to 18 months of targeted employment, health care, and housing interventions. It served particularly vulnerable sectors of this population, primarily veterans who served in the post-9/11 era.
