What you learn from applicants who have created a FAIR SHAKE PERSONAL WEB PAGE
The links below provide overviews of HUD homeless and housing programs. Currently, HUD manages seven programs that directlycombat homelessness. HUD also coordinates with the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs on two other programs (BRAC and HUD-VASH).
In addition to these “targeted” programs, HUD also funds “mainstream” programs that can provide additional assistance to persons who are homeless. As contrasted with targeted programs, HUD’s mainstream programs are not meant to exclusively serve homeless households. However, they are programs for which homeless persons are generally eligible because of their low-income or disability status.
