Housing Authority Honored by Department of Veterans Affairs
 

The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) was recognized by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for its efforts in supporting the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) voucher program.

The only housing authority in Northern Virginia to collaborate with HUD and VA on this program, the FCRHA received 35 vouchers to house homeless U.S. veterans in the community.  The HUD-VASH program combines federal Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance, administered by the FCRHA, with case management and clinical services provided by VA at its medical centers and within the community.

“The FCRHA is honored to be part of a partnership that provides an opportunity to support our nation’s military veterans,” said FCRHA Chairman Ronald F. Christian.  “We look forward to continuing our work with the VA, providing affordable housing for those who have fought so that we all may have a safe place to call home and the freedom to enjoy it.”

The FCRHA received this special recognition for outstanding contributions to the care of homeless veterans at a recent VA meeting.  The plaque was presented to the FCRHA at its annual meeting on July 22, 2010.
