WASHINGTON — Today, the Department of Veterans Affairs announced its 2024 goals in support of its efforts to prevent and end Veteran homelessness. Specifically, in fiscal year 2024, VA will:

  • Place at least 41,000 Veterans experiencing homelessness into permanent housing.
  • Ensure that at least 95% of the Veterans housed in FY 2024 do not return to homelessness during the year.
  • Engage with at least 40,000 unsheltered Veterans to help them obtain housing and other wraparound services.

Ending Veteran homelessness is a top priority of VA and the entire Biden Administration. Thanks in part to VA’s efforts, the number of Veterans experiencing homelessness has fallen by nearly 5% since early 2020 and by more than 52% since 2010.
