$600 Million Funding For Homeless Veterans Program

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has just announced that it will provide $600 million over the next two fiscal years to help low-income veteran families who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. The funding is being made available through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program in the form of grants to nonprofit organizations and consumer cooperatives that target this population. The SSVF program provides a range of supportive services for veterans, with priority given to services designed to help veterans keep their homes.
