Copies of the free directory can be ordered by calling toll-free 1-800-998-9999.
The directory is a product of HUDís Veteran Resource Center, or HUDVET.

In addition to the directory, the HUDVET website -- features comprehensive information on HUD programs as well as information and links to other Federal, State and local veterans' resources.
