VA Assistance to Help Avoid Eviction

If you or a Veteran you know needs immediate assistance to avoid eviction or loss of their housing, please call the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 1-877-4AID VET or (877) 424-3838. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

With temporary bans on evictions lifted many Americans, including Veterans, across the country need assistance to remain in their homes and pay for utilities and other housing-related services. VA staff are available to assist Veterans facing housing crises by directing them to the appropriate resources and supportive services offered by VA and other government entities. Below are details on several resources and services available for Veterans who are at an increased risk of eviction due to the ending of temporary renter protections.

If struggling to pay rent, utilities, or other housing costs…

Use the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Rental Assistance Finder to find help that may be available to you. Visit to find help paying rent.

Use legal aid resources, such as Free Legal Clinics and legal service directories to avoid eviction.

If in need of safe, stable housing…

Call the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-877-4AID VET or (877) 424-3838.

Connect with the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program by contacting the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 1-877-4AID VET or (877) 424-3838.

  • SSVF provides case management and supportive services to prevent homelessness or to rapidly re-house Veterans and their families who are homeless.
  • The SSVF program’s Shallow Subsidy intervention initiative—currently being expanded to be available in every county and equivalent in the 50 United States; the District of Columbia; Puerto Rico; the U.S. Virgin Islands; and Guam—provides a modest subsidy for two years to extremely low-income Veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Use the VA Facility Locator to contact the nearest VA Medical Center for help by visiting and entering your city, state, or zip code.

If other resources are needed…

Contact VA’s Home Loan Center at (877) 827-3702 for information on VA’s Partial Claim Payment program (VAPCP) that temporarily defers repayment of mortgage principal.

Access information on the full variety of available VA resources including housing assistance, health care, employment programs,  mental health services, and food security.

Watch the video recording and/or view slides from the joint webinar featuring subject matter experts from the White House, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and U.S. Department of the Treasury about resources for Veterans who may experience housing crises when the federal eviction moratorium ends.
