Working with SSVF
For many veterans, ending homelessness requires the right mix of assistance to secure stable housing and the income to sustain it. Research suggests that housing and employment services can be integrated to effectively meet veterans’ needs.
On Dec. 15, 2014 NVTAC held a webinar to discuss the overlaps of Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) and Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF). This webinar focused on how grantees blend SSVF and HVRP grants to house and employ their clients. In some cases one agency operates both grant programs while in other communities they are led by separate, partnering agencies. The webinar took the form of a roundtable discussion with several grantees and explored questions about how they do their daily work.
