HUD-VASH Registration of Interest Notice Made Public

In an email to Executive Directors, HUD attached the HUD-VASH Registration of Interest Notice (PIH 2021-21). The notice provides $49 million for new HUD-VASH assistance. The 2021 Appropriations Act provides $40 million, while the additional $9 million is from prior appropriations. HUD estimates that this funding has the potential to fund 6,000 new vouchers.

Awards of vouchers will follow a two-step process. First, eligible PHAs will respond to the notice with an email and a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) letter of support. Second, registered PHAs will receive an invitation to apply for a specific number of vouchers based on a “relative need” formula.

Registrations of interest should be submitted electronically to VASH_ROI@hud.gov no later than August 31, 2021.

Although not yet published on HUD’s website, the HUD-VASH registration of interest notice may be found here.
