Department of Veterans Affairs November 3, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Homeless Veterans
Document Number: 2017-23945
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-03
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is amending its regulations that govern homeless veterans to conform to recent statutory requirements. VA is amending the definition of homeless veterans by including veterans who would otherwise be ineligible to receive certain benefits because of their length of service or type of discharge from the Armed Forces. This rule will also increase the payment of per diem in cases where homeless veterans are placed in transitional housing that will become permanent housing. This final rule is an essential part of VA's attempts to eliminate homelessness among the veteran population.
