VASH Voucher Program Totals

 The Department of Veterans Affairs reported to the Cuyahoga Affordable Housing Alliance in July, and specifically spoke about the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Voucher program which is co-operated by CMHA.  Basically, CMHA administers the vouchers and the VA finds the veterans and provides help to them while they are in the housing.  Here are the local stats regarding the program.
