Veteran homelessness decreased by 5.4% since 2017, according to the annual homeless assessment report of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
This trend has shown improvement since 2010, when there were 74,000 homeless veterans, to just 37,878 homeless veterans in 2018.
According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, this trend is the direct result of the agency working to reduce the number of homeless vets who have returned home and find the transition difficult to make.
The 2018 estimate found that it was 37,878 veterans who were homeless. This compares with 40,020 that was reported in January 2017.
HUD’s the total number of reported veterans experiencing homelessness in 2018 at 23,312 and another 14,566 veterans living in places not intended for human habitation.
According to the report, in some states and communities veteran homelessness has been eradicated completely. According to the report Virginia, Delaware and Connecticut have ended veteran homelessness, along with 64 other U.S. communities.
