The Department of Veterans Affairs awarded $418 million in grants to more than 260 non-profit organizations in June, allowing low-income Veteran families around the Nation to access services under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program.
The grants will support SSVF services in Fiscal Year 2022. These awards stemmed from a Notice of Fund Availability (NOFA) published in the Federal Register on November 19, 2020. Thousands of very low-income Veteran families around the Nation who are permanently housed or transitioning to permanent housing will have access to crucial services under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. The funding will support SSVF services from October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022.
SSVF Grantees are in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Through partnerships with VA and community programs, SSVF provides eligible Veteran families with outreach, case management and assistance obtaining VA and other benefits, which can include health care, financial planning, childcare, legal and fiduciary payee assistance, transportation, housing counseling and other services.
