Housing Assistance for Veterans

Housing Assistance for Veterans

All people should be able to live in accessible, affordable housing. North Carolina has resources that help persons with disabilities obtain housing.

The resources below are specific to veterans. To see more general housing resources, click here.

NC Housing Search

NC Housing Search (www.nchousingsearch.org) helps people locate accessible, affordable units throughout the state. This service can be accessed online 24 hours a day and through a toll‐free, bilingual call center, Monday ‐ Friday, 9:00 a.m. ‐ 8:00 p.m. EDT at 1‐877‐428‐8844.  NCHousingSearch.org also provides helpful tools for renters such as an affordability calculator, rental checklist, and information on renter rights and responsibilities.

NC 2-1-1

You can dial NC 2-1-1 from any phone to reach a compassionate, trained call specialist 24/7/365 who has access to information on housing and senior resources, such as financial aid programs for home repairs that make a home accessible, agencies that offer housing counseling, and more. NC 2-1-1 is also available online at nc211.org.

VA Home Loan

The VA Loan is a mortgage loan to help returning service members buy homes without needing a down payment or excellent credit. The VA Loan is a lifeline for military homebuyers, many of whom find difficulty when faced with tough credit standards and down payment requirements.

Call 1-855-534-3014 to speak to a VA Home Loan Specialist.

HUD - VASH

This Supportive Housing Program gives permanent housing and ongoing case management treatment services to homeless veterans who would not be able to live independently without the support of case management. This program allows veterans to live in communities served by their VA medical facility. The program is supported through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and is administered throughout the state by public housing authorities.

Contact your local housing authority.

Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

For very low-income Veterans, SSVF gives case management and supportive services to prevent the imminent loss of a veteran’s home or to rapidly re-house veterans and their families who are homeless and might remain homeless without this assistance.

Find your local SSVF provider. Note that the year says 2017, but all providers received grants again for the 2018 - 2019 year.

VET Centers

The VET Center staff provide a broad range of counseling, outreach, and referral services to combat Veterans and their families.

Find your local VET Center.

National Call Center

Veterans and their families may also call 1-877-4AID-VET (1-877-424-3838) to access VA services.
