Topic:   SSVF NOFA Published in the Federal Register

A new SSVF NOFA has been published in the Federal Register. This NOFA provides funding opportunities for all existing grantees, including those grantees who were awarded 3-year grants that targeted high need communities in FY 2015.  Additionally, 8 CoCs have been targeted in the current NOFA and applicants may apply for new funding to serve those areas.

This NOFA is expected to be highly competitive and applicants are urged to closely review the NOFA and the associated training available on the SSVF website https://www.va.gov/homeless/ssvf/index.asp

The principal goal of this NOFA is to provide support to those applicants who demonstrate the greatest capacity to end homelessness through the adoption of evidence-based practices likely to lead to reductions in homelessness as defined by USICH's Federal Criteria and Benchmarks or, alternatively, Community Solutions Functional Zero.  Awards are for services to begin October 1, 2017.

Applications are due no later than February 3, 2017 at 4pm EST.  Please contact SSVF@va.gov if you have questions.
