Veterans

The city of Phoenix has been awarded 863 vouchers to provide housing to homeless veterans under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH). This program combines HUD Housing Choice Voucher Program rental assistance for homeless veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC).

The case managers at the local VAMC are responsible for referring eligible homeless veterans to the city -- interested homeless veterans should contact their local VAMC directly.  If you are a homeless veteran and want to be connected to VA services and programs and other community services call  1-877- 4AID VET (877-424-3838).

Visit the Mayor's Veterans webpage​ to learn more about Mayor Greg Stanton's commitment to end chronic veteran homelessness.
