Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration Evaluation: Summary
- November 2015
- December 10, 2015
The Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration (VHPD), funded in the 2009 appropriations bill, was intended to explore early interventions to help prevent veteran homelessness among service members, especially veterans returning from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. VHPD offered short- to medium-term rental assistance, case management, and employment services to eligible veterans. The VHPD evaluation shows that this approach can produce positive outcomes for veterans at risk of homelessness or who are already homeless.
