Webinar on Stand Down Financing
Oct. 9 at 2 p.m. EDT
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 Oct. 9 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 Stand Down grants, provided methods for engaging the VA Medical Center in your Stand Down, and described the major partnerships necessary for a successful event.
Organizations participating in or planning their first Stand Down events are encouraged to review the NCHV TA Center training Webinar “Stand Down Development” held on Oct. 7, 2014. Participants in “Stand Down Financing” included 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, were encouraged to participate.
The following presentation materials are available for "Stand Down Development."
