"Stand Down Financing"
March 10, 2014
Stand Down events across the country create an access point for homeless veterans and their families seeking services. To be effective, Stand Down organizers leverage partners within the community to help match the needs of veterans to available resources. While Stand Downs vary widely in structure and services, all Stand Down events require budget planning and fundraising to support activities.
On March 10 at 2:00 p.m. EDT, the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) hosted a webinar training on the Stand Down program, focusing on financing and coordinated services. This training outlined the application process for DOL-VETS HVRP Stand Down grants and provided information about surplus from VA.
Information from “Stand Down Financing” can assist HVRP grantees and their partners, other Stand Down organizers, and community partners interested in filling in gaps between veteran needs and available services. State workforce agencies, state and local workforce investment boards, veterans service organizations (VSOs), local public agencies, and nonprofit organizations, including community- and faith-based organizations that anticipate applying for Stand Down funds, may also benefit from the presentation's information.
