The Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program is a joint program between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The goal of the VASH program is to move homeless veterans and their families into supportive housing. The primary component of the program is VA Case Management services. It provides a link to medical care, mental health and substance abuse services. Case management also provides other services needed to enhance a veteran's ability to remain stable, housed, and integrated into the community.
HUD-VASH Housing Choice Vouchers
Dickson Housing Authority has been awarded seventy-six (76) HUD-VASH Vouchers to assist homeless veterans who wish to live in Dickson or Montgomery Counties. We will work in partnership with the VA Clarksville Outpatient Clinic (VAMC) to provide housing assistance in the form of a HUD-VASH Housing Choice Voucher which makes it possible for veterans to afford privately owned rental housing in our community.
The Housing Authority does not accept applications for the HUD-VASH program.
Homeless Veterans and their families who meet the eligibility criteria are referred to Dickson Housing Authority by the VA Case Management Team members.
All Homeless Veterans interested in more information about the HUD-VASH HCV Program and the eligibility requirements should contact:
