VA Announces Availability of SSVF Funds
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced the availability of funds for supportive services grants under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. The SSVF Program's purpose is to provide supportive services grants to private nonprofit organizations and consumer cooperatives who will coordinate or provide supportive services to very low-income veteran families who are residing in permanent housing, are homeless and scheduled to become residents of permanent housing within a specified time period, or after exiting permanent housing within a specified time period, are seeking other housing that is responsive to such very low-income veteran family's needs and preferences.
The top funding priority under this NOFA is for existing SSVF grantees seeking to renew their supportive services grants. Approximately $140 million of the up to $300 million available may be awarded depending on funding available under this priority. The second funding priority is for eligible entities applying for initial supportive services grants.
Applications must be received by the SSVF Program Office by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Feb. 1, 2013.
