The Veteran’s Administration is sending over a caseworker to help provide some subsidized housing vouchers for homeless veterans.  The "Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program," known as "VASH" issues vouchers to eligible homeless vets that will pay 70 to 100% of their rent. There's been a holdup because of hiring freezes at the VA. Kenny LaPoint with Housing Works that helps administer the program says some help is on the way: “They bring over somebody who can make decision as to who receives vouchers. Technically, it’s an off site caseworker.  It doesn’t solve the problem permanently, because we don’t have a caseworker in the area and we’re not able to issue the entire amount of vouchers that we have, it sounds like    it will be able to issue between 5 and 10 vouchers at this time.” The way the program works is eligible veterans apply and VA caseworkers decide who will get the 25 vouchers for Central Oregon veterans.   The vouchers are then applied to their rent. LaPoint hopes a permanent caseworker will be here next month.
