In this webinar, ABT Associates will review the newest SSVF monthly reporting from the VA HMIS Repository and how to interpret the results each SSVF program receives at the end of each upload cycle.  A refresher of the Data Quality Summary and Data Quality Details reports, which are sent with every successful upload, will also be provided. There will be an opportunity for data collection questions and clarification on any upload concerns that have arisen within the first few uploads of the new fiscal year. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.


REMINDER: FY2022 NOFA Response Submission-The Program Office has simplified the NOFA response submission this year and will only require grantees to submit a letter of intent to continue services through FY2022 or FY2023 for Priority 3 submissions, Budget & CoC distribution (Exhibit I-III), and proof of accreditation, when applicable. In preparation for submission, grantees may download the Budget & CoC distribution template (Exhibit I-III) to have it ready when our office gives further guidance for submission. Letters of Intent will be incorporated into the new grants management system. The Program Office will not require a full application or letters of support from the CoC or VAMC with the submission this year.

Although letters of support are not required, the SSVF Program Office expects grantees to continue planning with their local CoCs and VAMCs during the pandemic and throughout the grant year.  The SSVF Program Office will provide more information on submissions within the coming weeks.
