VA Assistance to Help Avoid Eviction

Posted on August 2, 2021


On July 31, 2021, the extension of the national eviction moratorium — temporary ban on evictions implemented during the coronavirus pandemic by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — will end. This change will impact Americans, including Veterans, across the country who live in communities without local eviction moratoriums in place.

VA is ready to assist Veterans facing housing crises by directing them to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Rental Assistance Finder or appropriate VA programs. Below are details on several resources and services available for Veterans who are at an increased risk of eviction due to the expiration of temporary renter protections.

If you or a Veteran you know needs immediate housing assistance, as the eviction moratorium expires, please call the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 1-877-4AID VET or (877) 424-3838. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
