Deadline: Applications for FY2013 Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program
Friday, February 1 - all day
This year, $300 million is available for nonprofit organizations to implement the SSVF program, an increase of $200 million from the previous year’s available funds. SSVF’s purpose is to provide supportive services grants to private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives who will coordinate or provide supportive services to very low-income Veteran families who: a.) are residing in permanent housing, b.) are homeless and scheduled to become residents of permanent housing within a specified time period, or c.) 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. Grantees will be expected to leverage supportive services grant funds to enhance the housing stability of very low-income Veteran families who are occupying permanent housing. In doing so, grantees are required to establish relationships with local community resources.
Applications will be due to the SSVF Program office by February 1, 2013.
