Register Now: Annual Rapid Re-Housing Institute (RRHI)


The SSVF Program Office, with the support of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness and other federal and national partners, is pleased to announce a Save the Date for the second annual Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) Institutes. These events are specifically targeted to RRH practitioners and crisis response system planners!


The VA, in close partnership with its partners and technical assistance providers, and other national partners, are currently planning the two Rapid Rehousing Institutes for the fall of 2018 (both events will be identical in content). These events, which will be different in format and content from the 2017 events, will bring together RRH practitioners and planners from around the country for an intensive, 1.5-day training and conference event focused on topics and creative solutions to rapid rehousing and rapid resolution (diversion and rapid exit) practices.


SSVF grantees will spend an extra half day beyond their CoC partner attendees, making this a full two-day event for grantees. A preliminary agenda will be released later in the summer.


Registration information has been sent to all SSVF grantees that were recommended for renewal in FY19.  Due to space limitations, there will be a limit to the number of individual attendees per SSVF grantee We encourage grantees to register for the event and book hotels as soon as possible.


∑ East Coast Rapid Rehousing Institute: October 2 - October 3, 2018 Miami, FL ∑ West Coast Rapid Rehousing Institute: October 16 - October 17, 2018 San Diego, CA


Questions related to registration for these events can be sent to the SSVF programís technical assistance address at Questions about who from each agency should attend the event should be directed to your SSVF Regional Coordinator.

This event is being sponsored by the VA, with support from HUD and USICH, and the primary SSVF TA partners, The Technical Assistance Collaborative and Abt Associates.



Save the Date:  SSVF National Webinar October 11, 2018 at 2 PM Eastern


The topic of this webinar is SSVF Changes to Monitoring and Preparing for Monitoring Visits for FY19.  The SSVF Program Office in partnership with the Office of Internal Controls will assist grantees in understanding changes to monitoring procedures and preparing for monitoring visits in the next grant year.  Registration information will be provided.



Resource: Information on Registering to Vote at


The SSVF Program Office would like to share a resource that SSVF providers may utilize to assist Veterans in registering to vote.  Registration deadlines for November elections are approaching in many states and is a helpful website with voter resources, including basic steps on how to vote, a guide for new voters, and information on where and how to register.



Thank You,


SSVF Program Office
