VA announced the awarding of $300M in grants under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, including $11M for NJ grants.
The VA has released an annual report for the SSVF program that lauds the effectiveness of the program and details its achievements.
VA proposed a new rule that would require SSVF provide permanent housing assistance to veteran families who would likely become homeless without it.
Eric Shinseki, secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA), emphasized that ending veteran homelessness by the end of 2015 is one of VA’s top three goals.
The VA is committed to ending homelessness for any men or woman that has served its country including the growing population of veterans with families.
