Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) assists homeless and at-risk Veteran families.
Through the SSVF Program, VA aims to improve very low-income Veteran families’ housing stability. Grantees (private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives) will provide eligible Veteran families with outreach, case management, and assistance in obtaining VA and other benefits, which may include:
· Health care services
· Daily living services
· Personal financial planning services
· Transportation services
· Fiduciary and payee services
· Legal services
· Child care services
· Housing counseling services
In addition, grantees may also provide time-limited payments to third parties (e.g., landlords, utility companies, moving companies, and licensed child care providers) if these payments help Veterans’ families stay in or acquire permanent housing on a sustainable basis.
