VA Announces Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program Awards
On July 26, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric Shinseki announced the award of 85 new grants under the VA's new Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. The SSVF Program is a new VA program that awards grants to private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives to provide supportive services to very low-income Veterans and their families residing in or transitioning to permanent housing. The grantees will provide a range of supportive services designed to promote housing stability. Awardees will be receiving an e-mail notification from the VA in addition to an award package detailing the procedure for claiming funds.
Technical assistance for the SSVF program grantees will be provided by the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and Abt Associates in partnership with the VA SSVF Program Office. Details regarding TA available to grantees will be distributed after grantee contracts are processed.
