The Department of Veterans Affairs Enhanced-Use Lease Program (EUL) is an important component of both VA’s mission to end Veteran homelessness and the departments overall asset management program.
Through this program, VA out-leases underutilized real estate under its jurisdiction or control to the private sector for up to 75 years for the purpose of developing supportive housing for homeless and at risk Veterans and their families.
Through this innovative portfolio management tool, Veterans are provided with an expanded range of services that would not otherwise be available on medical center campuses.
The Veterans Day Parade San Diego by IAVA (Iraq Afghanistan Veterans of America) was a great event showcasing not only the incredible support of our country’s great armed forces service personnel and the military community as a whole, especially here in San Diego, California.
IAVA is the leading voice of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in Washington and communities nationwide. Led by veterans, our non-partisan advocacy work ensures that Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families are supported, protected and never forgotten. Since 2004, IAVA has been a juggernaut in Washington, creating

IAVA’s dedicated staff in Washington, D.C. leads this work, advocating on behalf of our members daily. We also train our member veterans to be powerful advocates for their community.Continue reading→
