VA Announces Availability of Funds Under the SSVF Program

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. The grant funds are available for nonprofit organizations to provide rapid re-housing and prevention services for veterans who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. The funding level is three times larger than last year's funding level, and the Alliance is encouraging all those with expertise in rapid re-housing to consider applying. The application deadline for initial and renewal supportive services grants under the SSVF Program is Friday, February 1, 2013, 4 p.m. ET.

The Alliance will hold a webinar on the SSVF grant program and the application process on Wednesday, December 12. More details about the upcoming webinar to come in next week's newsletter.

Alliance Seeks Input on State Advocacy Efforts

What issues in your state have the most impact on chronic homelessness? With much of the action on health care reform moving to the states in 2013, advocates working to end homelessness can play an important role by providing policymakers with data and solutions on the intersection of housing and health care. The Alliance aims to be prepared with tools to help advocates working in their state capitals. To do this, we are seeking input on your current outlook and experience. If you have any strategy sessions coming up, our questions could help start a conversation in your network. Responses are due by Sunday, November 9.

USICH Releases National Research Agenda for 2013

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) has released "The National Research Agenda: Priorities for Advancing Our Understanding of Homelessness." The agenda outlines priority areas that funders, researchers and officials should target in order to meet the goals of Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, by furthering best practices and producing research that will inform the policymaking process.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a nonpartisan, non profit organization dedicated to solving the problem of homelessness and preventing its continued growth.
