SSVF and HUD-VASH Services COVID-19
Beginning April 24, 2020, through December 31, 2020, SSVF will modify guidance to allow SSVF grantees to provide housing search assistance, housing placements, security deposits, and rental assistance for Veterans participating in HUD-VASH and looking for housing. This will allow Veterans to secure prospective housing while waiting for the PHA to complete the process of issuing a HUD-VASH voucher and completing the required housing quality standards (HQS) inspection. SSVF providers may have limited capacity and resources to provide this type of assistance therefore HUD-VASH and SSVF staff should meet to discuss available funding, staffing capacity, and referral process frequently. Please review the memorandum below:.
The HUD VASH SSVF referral packet for Rapid Rehousing Assistance Temporary Final Assistance ONLY is available below. Please note that referrals for Homelessness Prevention Services, or Housing Search and Placement services will require a full intake into the SSVF Program.
