In order to reach the federal goal of ending veteran homelessness, the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program will be a key resource. VA continues to expand the SSVF program to house veteran families, building on the success of the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP). This workshop will provide information and examples that can be used by recently funded grantees as well as communities considering applying for SSVF to develop and implement a best practice rapid re-housing and prevention model for veterans and their families.
