Veterans & Housing

Veterans advocates ARE housing advocates

After having served our country bravely, veterans need access to good affordable housing so that they can thrive in the very neighborhoods they swore to defend.

The affordable housing need for veterans is large

“Many veterans who are not homeless nevertheless struggle to afford housing.  In 2012, some 1.79 million low-income veterans lived in households that paid more than 30 percent of their income for rent and utilities, and 762,000 lived in households that paid more than 50 percent.” Quoted from Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, 2014.
