Grantee Orientation Guide - Updated April 2016
The primary purpose of the Grantee Orientation Guide, formerly titled the New Grantee Orientation Guide, is to provide a basic set of orientation and training resources for organizations that have received SSVF program funds for the first time. Existing SSVF grantees may also use these resources to guide introductory training for new staff. The guide aims to provide an introductory framework of SSVF including: program requirements, program practices and philosophies, examples of grantee best practices in the field, and useful tools for program start-up and implementation.

In order to satisfy this requirement, Grantees should electronically distribute the survey to participants within 30 days of the participant's exit from the program, using a customized weblink provided by VA contractor, M. Davis and Company (MDAC).
