North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

SSVF Funding Available from VA

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has released a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for funding for the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program.

The NOFA will make approximately $93 million available over a 3-year period for non-renewable grants to eligible entities proposing services for one of the 28 high-need Continuums of Care (CoCs) listed in the NOFA. The 28 locations were selected based on factors that include levels of Veteran homelessness and current unmet service needs. In North Carolina, the only high-need CoC is NC-501 (Asheville/Buncombe).

Applications are due by 4 p.m. ET on December 5, 2014. Awards made for supportive services grants will fund operations beginning approximately March 1, 2015 through February 28, 2018.

The NOFA and all application materials are posted on http://www.va.gov/homeless/ssvf.asp.
