FY14-15 APG PROGRESS UPDATE The HUD-VASH program provides homeless veterans with vouchers through the Housing Choice Voucher program so they can access rental housing in the private market. Key components of the HUD-VASH program are the case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers and in the community as a condition of receiving a HUD-VASH voucher. These vouchers are targeted to Veterans experiencing chronic homelessness and those with the most severe health and service needs. Currently, the program serves more than 52,000 Veterans. Since the program’s inception in 2008, more than 80,000 Veterans found housing through HUD-VASH. Secretary Castro Visits Louisville, KY Veterans also receive assistance through HUD’s Continuum of Care (CoC) program, which is operating in 410 geographic areas across the country, coordinating efforts to end homelessness in their areas. Veterans experiencing chronic homelessness, but not eligible for the HUD-VASH program, are served through CoC permanent supportive housing, which, in 2013, assisted 12,919 Veterans. The CoC programs offered transitional housing resources to another 10,789 Veterans through the FY 2013 competition, in operation throughout 2014. The full impact of these services in reducing Veteran homelessness will be assessed in the January 2015 Point-in-Time count. Since the 2010 release of the Opening Doors report, the number of Veterans experiencing homelessness has declined by 33 percent. In addition, during the Point-in-Time count in January 2014, there were 49,933 Veterans experiencing homelessness, representing a decline of 10.4 percent since the Point-in-Time count of January 2013. HUD’s progress in ending Veteran homelessness has been driven by the use of a Housing First approach, reducing barriers to housing, and targeting resources effectively. Moreover, communities are implementing strategies across medical, nonprofit, private, and governmental stakeholders that better assess and meet the housing and services needs of Veterans experiencing homelessness. In fact, as of April 2015, 570 leaders in cities, counties, and states signed onto the “Mayors Challenge,” a call-to-action for mayors to make a commitment to ending Veteran homelessness in 2015.

Strategic Objective: Economic Prosperity Promote advancements in economic prosperity for residents of HUD-assisted housing. OVERVIEW Residents of HUD-assisted housing often face challenges such as lack of employable skills and low educational attainment levels that limit their ability to become economically self-sufficient and rise out of poverty. The Department recognizes that while some families and individuals will need assistance for longer periods, others are capable, with assistance, of rising out of poverty. A majority of adults receiving rental assistance who are able to work have some income from wages; however, they are most often in the lowest-paying jobs. Further, increasing workplace demands for technical expertise require attention to education and training for both adults and youth, including digital literacy. HUD will utilize its housing platform to expand access to employment and educational services. HUD seeks to significantly increase the economic opportunities available to low-income residents in neighborhoods where it invests, particularly through the Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) program and Section 3. 71 STRATEGIES • Build evidence on effectiveness of programs that promote economic self-sufficiency by evaluating the FSS program through a randomized controlled trial by 2018. • Implement an evidence-based evaluation to improve reentry outcomes for formerly incarcerated individuals and their communities. HUD will assess models that deliver permanent supportive housing linked with employment, behavioral health services, and family unification. HUD is considering options ranging from an evaluation of existing PHA reentry programs to an interagency effort that would involve leveraging private/philanthropic investments to support permanent supportive housing plus services within a pay-for-success framework. • Expand the Section 3 Business Registry system nationwide. In March 2014, the Section 3 business Registry was expanded from a pilot program in five metropolitan areas to a national resource for meeting the regulatory requirements of Section 3. The Section 3 Business Registry serves to assist grantees and PHAs with identifying and notifying prospective Section 3 businesses about the availability of local HUD-funded contracting opportunities; provide uniform self-certification procedures; and increase the pool of Section 3 businesses that may submit bids for HUD-funded contracts. Expanding the registry nationwide will be supported with training, HUD guidance, and marketing to increase awareness of this resource. • Strengthen collaboration between HUD programs to ensure recipients have adequate guidance and technical assistance and that HUD has a coordinated approach to compliance. Section 3 compliance is overseen by HUD’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, but funding is distributed to recipients through other program offices, including the Office of Public and Indian Housing, the Office of Community Planning and Development, the Office of Housing, and the 71 Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 requires that recipients of certain HUD financial assistance, to the greatest extent feasible, provide job training, employment, and contracting opportunities for low- or very-low income residents in connection with projects and activities in their neighborhoods and to the businesses that substantially employ them.
