US Department of Veterans Affairs Announces FY 2019 Grant and Per Diem Awards
Today the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced it plans to provide approximately $200 million in fiscal year 2019 funding to support more than 13,000 transitional housing beds for its Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program.
VA intends to award about $2.7 million to renew 12 Special Need grants for support services for homeless Veterans who have chronic mental illnesses, women Veterans and Veterans who must care for dependents under age 18.
"The Grant and Per Diem program gives our homeless Veterans an important source of support," said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. "We appreciate the U.S. Congress providing this funding because every homeless Veteran deserves the opportunity to move from living on the streets to a safe and supportive environment."
NCHV congratulates all those who received renewal or new grants in the recent award cycles. Thank you for continuing to serve our most vulnerable veterans.
Providers who received awards in the FY 2017 round should be receiving guidance shortly from VA on how to exercise the option year on their 2017 grant. The list of awardees from the 2017 round can be found directly by clicking here.
Anyone not awarded may find "Transitioning from Transitional Housing: A guide for Grant and Per Diem providers and other transitional housing operators" to be a useful resource. This guide can be found on our websiteby clicking here.
