SAVE THE DATES: SSVF 2020 Virtual Housing Conference – November 9th -November
The SSVF Program Office is pleased to announce that the 2020 Housing Conference will be virtual! This year, SSVF has partnered closely with HUD-VASH to design a virtual conference series that will take place November 9th - November 20th. Each day during those two weeks will include one or two virtual sessions for a total of 16 sessions. There will be no sessions on Veterans Day. Sessions will take place at either 1:00pm EST or 3:00pm EST each day and there will be no limit to the number of attendees who can participate. The SSVF Program Office will release the full schedule and registration details shortly, along with minimum expectations for SSVF Grantee attendance. We anticipate being able to offer Continuing Education Credits for the conference as well. While we will miss seeing you all in person this year, we hope the virtual format will allow for more Grantee staff to attend sessions relevant to their work.
ATTENTION: FY2021 Grant Agreement and Budget Submission Requirements Due October 20th 2020
The SSVF Program Office distributed the FY2021 MOA and information regarding the FY2021 Budget and Grant Agreement Resolution Submissions this week. Grantees need to ensure they have reviewed this information and complete the GIFTS Requirements by October 20th, 2020. It is imperative that Grantees review the Budget Submission information and instructions carefully to ensure this document is completed and submitted as required. The October 8th webinar provided extensive information about the budget submission process, please refer to the recording as needed for questions. Attendees will receive the webinar recording early next week and it will be posted on the SSVF Website under National Webinars.
Should there be any questions regarding the FY2021 MOA, please contact the SSVF Program Office at SSVF@va.gov.
REMINDER: Additional FY2020 Program Change GIFTS Requirement, Due Tuesday, October 13th, 2020
The SSVF Program Office has published an additional Program Change Requirement for Grantees. These requirements are due October 13th, 2020. Grantees may request changes to align their FY2020 budgets with changes made to program design or concept while operating under the recent CARES award. In addition, grantees may request anticipated changes for the operating year FY2021, as most grantees may be using FY2020 funds for part of the first quarter of FY2021.
This is an optional submission. Before completing, please refer to the SSVF Companion Guide to Program Changes available on the SSVF Website at:
