VA RIN: 2900-AP45 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Fisher Houses and Other Temporary Lodging 

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposed to amend its regulations concerning Fisher House and other temporary lodging furnished by VA while a veteran is experiencing an episode of care at a VA medical facility. Such lodging is generally furnished to veterans’ relatives, close friends, and caregivers at no cost, because VA’s experience has shown that veterans’ treatment outcomes are improved by having loved ones nearby. The proposed rule updates current regulations and better describes the application process for this lodging. The proposed rule generally reflects current VA policy and practice.
