Files: Grant and Per Diem Program Transition in Place by Jeffery L. Quarles (PDF | 1.32 MB | 34 slides)

As the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs moves forward in its plan to end homelessness, new programs are evolving to meet the needs of a new generation of veterans. VA’s transitional housing program, the Grant and Per Diem (GPD) program, is accepting applications for a transition-in-place (TIP) model. TIP is emerging as an important new way in which the GPD program can be implemented. This workshop will examine the transition-in-place model, look at how traditional facilitybased transitional programs are interpreting it, and answer questions around implementation, program design, and funding.

The powerpoint presentations for this workshop are available for download above.
