Hello SSVF grantees,


The SSVF Program Office is happy to inform you that recent increases to the SSVF budget will allow us to restore the 5.7% uniform reduction in funding made to renewal grants. We anticipate that grantees and VA will need to sign an addendum to the existing SSVF grant agreement that will finalize this grant increase.  Additionally, procedural instructions for making revisions to your SSVF budget will be provided.    Please note that grantees may elect not to accept this increase; however, there will be no partial funding increases to the renewal grants.  We appreciate your patience as we determine the process and timeline for increasing the FY 19 grant awards.   More details will be provided in the coming weeks.


Thank you for your continued efforts in delivering these critically needed services!


SSVF Program Office
