Shallow Subsidy Press Release, August 2021
SSVF announces the commitment of $200 million to support the national expansion of SSVF's Shallow Subsidy Service. This funding is expected to be made available to SSVF grantees in October. Additionally, an interim rule, expected to be published around November, should increase the maximum allowable subsidy to 50% of rent reasonableness. These changes offer new tools to address the needs of Veteran households facing severe rent burdens.
Emergency Rental Assistance Locator
The Treasury Department now maintains a list of Emergency Rental Assistance Programs (ERAP) assistance by state. These programs can provide the financial assistance necessary to prevent evictions. This broader mandate, preventing evictions rather than SSVF's more focused mandate to prevent homelessness, may mean that ERAP is a resource for some Veterans who would not be eligible for SSVF prevention services
