Number of Homeless Veterans Rose Over 7% in Last Year — Highest Jump Ever Tracked

The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s recently released study showed that homeless veterans rose more than seven percent from 2022 to 2023, the largest yearly jump since tracking began over a decade ago.

This increased 2,400 individuals without stable housing, bringing the total to 35,574.

Advocates for homeless veterans believe the number is likely higher due to the limitations of the survey.

In a statement, Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough announced that the White House intends to increase grant programs aimed at preventing homelessness among veterans.

“One veteran experiencing homelessness will always be one too many, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that veterans get the safe, stable housing that they deserve,” he said in the statement.

The VA statement acknowledged that the cost of housing and the cessation of pandemic-era support could be potential factors in the escalating rate of homelessness among veterans.

“VA will investigate these barriers and do everything in its power to help Veterans overcome them,” the statement said.
