Enhanced-Use Lease (EUL)



Multimedia Sign

See how VA is helping to permanently house Veterans by using VA underutilized real estate across the country through the Enhanced-Use Lease (EUL) program.

July 1, 2016 - EUL is an important component of both VA’s mission to end Veteran homelessness and the departments overall asset management program.


October 7, 2021 - The Alexander Company in partnership with OAEM constructed and is operating 101 permanent supportive housing units. This EUL consists of 7 buildings (built 1869-1922) — including Old Main (2), the most prominent and recognizable building on the campus, the Administration Building (1), the Catholic Chaplain’s Quarters (14) and 4 duplexes (18, 19, 62 and 64). This $40+ million dollar project was awarded several affordable housing and historic preservation accolades.


November 8, 2013 - A first of its kind Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) housing community for homeless Veterans, located on the Lyons Campus of the VA New Jersey Health Care System in Lyons, New Jersey.  Residential common spaces form a village-style setting on 16+ acres and feature sixty-two 1&2 bedroom apartment homes with tons of open space, pedestrian friendly walkways and an overall sense of community with a true neighborhood feel.
