SSVF Provides New Resources
The United States Veterans Administration (VA) is committed to ending homelessness for any men or woman that has served its country. And the VA’s mission to do this now includes the growing population of veterans with families.
Vince Kane of the VA National Center on Homelessness Among Veterans at Veterans Affairs gave remarks over lunch on February 18, 2014 at the National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference on Ending Family and Youth Homelessness.
Kane spoke of the great work being done for homeless veterans “so all of them can be home” and we are “at the point where we can and veteran homelessness in the country.”
Kane highlighted the new $600 million Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) which has been released. Nonprofits across the country working Families who have been housed with this program are successfully staying housed with more than 86% of households still in housing a year after moving into housing.
