VA Announces New SSVF and GPD Funding to Address Veteran Homelessness
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently announced several FY 2024 funding opportunities to help veterans experiencing or at risk of homelessness through the following federal programs:
Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)
This program provides supportive services to rapidly rehouse veterans and their families, prevent the imminent loss of a veteran's home, or identify new, more suitable housing situations for veterans and their families. VA anticipates awarding funding to eligible organizations located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and Virgin Islands.
SSVF grant applications must be received by 4 p.m. ET, Feb. 10, 2023.
For questions, view the SSVF Notice of Funding availability or email SSVF@va.gov.
Grant and Per Diem (GPD)
This program provides veterans-in-need with transitional housing beds and case management—connecting them to VA benefits, community-based services, and permanent housing.
Per Diem Only (PDO) grants will fund transitional supportive housing beds or service centers. VA anticipates awarding 350 PDO grants to support approximately 10,500 transitional housing beds and 15 service centers nationwide. PDO grant applications must be received by 4 p.m. ET, Feb. 6, 2023.
Transition in Place (TIP) grants will provide veterans with apartment-style housing that allows veterans to remain in their homes when they complete the GPD program. The department anticipates awarding approximately 40 Transition in Place grants to support 600 TIP beds nationwide. TIP grant applications must be received by 4 p.m. ET, Jan. 30, 2023. For questions, view the GPD PDO Notice of Funding Opportunity, the GPD TIP Notice of Funding Opportunity, or email GPDGrants@va.gov.
