The Health Care for the Homeless Veterans Program (HCHV), previously known as the Homeless Chronically Mentally Ill Veterans Program, authorized by the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act, provides outreach; case management services; and community-based residential services for homeless veterans with a focus on those who have psychiatric and substance use disorders. Veterans in the HCHV Program may become involved in therapeutic work opportunities through Veterans Industries, and may be assisted in securing permanent housing. A total of 134 sites in 45 states and the District of Columbia provide an integrated network of programs for these veterans. Another component of the HCHV Program allows Veterans Affairs to provide grants and per diem payments to public and nonprofit organizations to develop supported housing programs and supportive service centers for veterans who are homeless.
