Rahall Announces Funding for Veteran Homeless Prevention; VA Soliciting Applications from Community Provider Groups

-

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) Tuesday announced the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is accepting applications for grant funding for community organizations to prevent veteran homelessness.

“In this nation of plenty, where we sleep at night comforted by the sense of safety our Armed Forces provide, homelessness among veterans is a travesty,” said Rahall, who is a member of the House Military Veterans Caucus. “Readjusting to civilian life is often difficult for veterans and their families, but having a place to call home provides a solid foundation for service members to readjust and rebuild. This type of assistance serves to strengthen our communities one family at a time.”

The VA funds are offered for fiscal year 2012 through the Department’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program, a homeless-prevention program that provides grants to community organizations for counseling, training, education assistance, direct time-limited financial assistance, transportation, child care, rent, utilities, and other services aimed at preventing homelessness or providing homes for participating veterans and family members.

Private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives interested in the grants have until February 15, 2012, to submit completed applications.

VA is sponsoring free workshops in December 2011 and January 2012 to review the grant application process. Community organizations interested in applying for funds under this program can use the VA website to find dates for workshops or to get more information on the SSVF program can also contact VA at 1-877-737-0111 or at SSVF (at) va (dot) gov U.S. Rep.
