VA Calls for Letters of Intent from Organizations Interested in Applying for SSVF Funding

VA Calls for Letters of Intent from Organizations Interested in Applying for SSVF Funding
Submissions due by Sept. 28, 2012

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published a notice in the Aug. 23 Federal Register which requests that eligible entities interested in applying for funding under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program submit a letter of intent. The SSVF Program expects to publish a notice of funding availability (NOFA) in fiscal year (FY) 2013. The NOFA will contain information concerning the SSVF Program, initial and renewal supportive services grant application processes, and amount of funding available.

Interested organizations are encouraged to submit a non-binding letter of intent to apply for initial and renewal supportive services grants under the SSVF Program by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Sept. 28, 2012. For a copy of the Letter of Intent format: Download directly from the SSVF Program Web page which can be found at www.va.gov/homeless/ssvf.asp. Questions should be referred to the SSVF Program Office via phone at (877) 737-0111 (this is a toll-free number) or via email at
SSVF@va.gov.

The SSVF Program's purpose is to provide supportive services grants to private nonprofit organizations and consumer cooperatives who will coordinate or provide supportive services to very low-income Veteran families who are residing in permanent housing, are  homeless and scheduled to become residents of permanent housing within a specified time period, or after exiting permanent housing, are seeking other housing that is responsive to such very low-income veteran family's needs and preferences.
