COMING SOON: FY2020 Quarter 4 Program Changes (GIFTS Requirement)
The SSVF Program Office will publish Program Change requests for Quarter 4 on August 17, 2020; the due date for these requirements is September 14, 2020. Grantees may request changes to align their FY20 budgets with changes that were made to program design or concept while operating under the recent CARES award. In addition, grantees may request anticipated changes for operating year FY2021, as most grantees may be using FY20 funds for part of the first Quarter of FY21.
UPDATE: SSVF Emergency Housing Assistance Tracking
The SSVF Program Office has provided grantees with more flexibility in using Emergency Housing Assistance by waiving the 45-day limit on the number of days a Veteran could stay in a hotel. This has allowed grantees more time to work on housing plans to move Veterans directly from hotels into permanent housing units. The SSVF Program Office will begin asking grantees to track permanent housing placements, and in August, grantees will report Veteran placements from hotels into permanent housing on the Emergency Housing Requirement form.
