VA Housing Assistance

VA housing assistance can help Servicemembers, Veterans, and their surviving spouses to buy a home or refinance a loan. We also offer benefits and services to help you build, repair, or keep your current home. This includes grants for Veterans with service-connected disabilities who need to adapt their home to live as independently as possible. Find out how to apply for and manage the Veterans housing assistance benefits you've earned.

How do I get help if I'm homeless or at risk of becoming homeless?
We may be able to help.

We offer many programs and services that may help—including free health care and, in some cases, free limited dental care. We can also help you connect with resources in your community, like homeless shelters or faith-based organizations.

Find the support you need:

  • Call the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 1-877-4AID-VET (1-877-424-3838) for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You’ll talk privately with a trained VA counselor for free.
  • Contact your nearest VA medical center and ask to talk with the VA social worker. If you’re a female Veteran, ask for the Women Veterans Program Manager.
    Find the nearest VA medical center.

Talk with someone right now:

If you’re a Veteran in crisis or concerned about one, connect with our caring, qualified Veterans Crisis Line responders for confidential help. Many of them are Veterans themselves. This service is private, free, and available 24/7.
