“We are committed to ending Veteran homelessness in America,” said Shinseki. “These grants will help VA and community organizations reach out and prevent at-risk Veterans from losing their homes.”
Under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, VA is awarding grants to private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives that provide services to very low-income Veteran families living in — or transitioning to — permanent housing. Those community organizations provide a range of services that promote housing stability among eligible very low-income Veteran families.
The only new program was funded in New Jersey. United Veterans of America, Inc. (Soldier On), which covers NJ and Massachusetts received an award of $1 million. In NJ they are will provide SSVF services in Burlington, Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean.
