Topic: SSVF NOFA Published in the Federal Register
A new SSVF NOFA has been published in the Federal Register. This NOFA provides funding opportunities to renew existing grants. This NOFA is 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. Scoring criteria are described in 38 CFR 62.21, 62.23, and 62.24. Awards are for services to begin October 1, 2020.
Applications are due no later than January 31, 2020 at 4pm EST. Please contact SSVF@va.gov if you have questions.
Note: Those SSVF programs with multi-year awards that are not required to submit a renewal application must submit a Letter of Intent indicating the agency's desire to continue program operations in FY 2021. The Letter of Intent Requirement form will request multi-year grantees to also provide proof of continued accreditation, a FY 2021 budget (Application Exhibits I-III), Executive Director Certification of Community Planning and a CoC letter of support. The CoC letter must contain detail described in Section II.C.8 of NOFA. Priority 3 applicants must submit a Letter of Intent requirement for each award, with an annual budget, Executive Director Certification of Community Planning and a CoC letter of support. The SSVF online grants management system (GIFTS) contains Requirement forms for these grantees. Please refer to the SSVF website to download the FY2021 Budget Template (Application Exhibits I-III) and sample Executive Director Certification template. Letter of Intent Requirements are due no later than January 31, 2020 at 4 pm EST. Please contact SSVF@va.gov if you have questions.
