Concerned about the increasing risk of homelessness among veterans returning from the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, in 2009 Congress authorized the Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration (VHPD), a joint program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Part of the Obama Administration’s plan to end veteran homelessness by 2016, VHPD was one of the first homelessness prevention programs to exclusively serve homeless and at-risk veterans and their families.
