FEDERAL GRANTS FOR HOMELESS VETERAN SERVICE PROVIDERS

Department of Veterans Affairs

Department of Labor - Veterans' Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS)

Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)'s GPD program is offered annually, as funding permits, by VA Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) program to fund community agencies providing services to homeless veterans. The purpose is to promote the development and provision of supportive housing and/or services with the goal of helping homeless veterans achieve residential stability, increase their skill levels and/or income, and obtain greater self-determination.

Only programs with supportive housing (up to 24 months) or service centers (offering services such as case management, education, crisis intervention, counseling, services targeted to specialized populations including homeless women veterans, etc.) are eligible for these funds. The program has two levels of funding: the Grant component and the Per Diem component.

Grants: Limit is 65 percent of the costs of construction, renovation or acquisition of a building for use as service centers or transitional housing for homeless veterans. Renovation of VA properties is allowed; acquiring VA properties is not. Recipients must obtain the matching 35 percent share from other sources. Grants may not be used for operational costs, including salaries.

Per Diem: Priority in awarding the Per Diem funds goes to the recipients of grants. Non-grant programs may apply for Per Diem under a separate announcement, when published in the Federal Register, announcing the funding for “Per Diem Only.”

Operational costs, including salaries, may be funded by the Per Diem component. For supportive housing, the maximum amount payable under the per diem is $45.79 per day per veteran housed. Veterans in supportive housing may be asked to pay rent if it does not exceed 30 percent of the veteran's monthly-adjusted income. In addition, "reasonable" fees may be charged for services not paid with Per Diem funds. The maximum hourly per diem rate for a service center not connected with supportive housing is 1/8 of the daily cost of care, not to exceed the current VA State Home rate for domiciliary care.  Payment for a veteran in a service center will not exceed 8 hours in any day.

Applications are not accepted for Capital Grants or “Per Diem Only” funding until the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) is published in the Federal Register. Funds will be awarded to programs determined to be the most qualified. The contact person for the GPD program is Jeff Quarles:

Mark Johnston, HUD Deputy Assistant Secretary for Special NeedsHUD-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program, through a cooperative partnership, provides long-term case management, supportive services and permanent housing support for homeless veterans.
 
Eligible veterans receive VA-provided case management and supportive services to support stability and recovery from physical and mental health, substance use, and functional concerns contributing to or resulting from homelessness.
 
HUD provides "Housing Choice" Section 8 vouchers designated for HUD-VASH to participating Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to assist with rent payment. The program's goals include promoting maximal veteran recovery and independence to sustain permanent housing in the community for the veteran and the veteran's family.
 
This program began seeing its highest housing placement in 2010. By the beginning of 2011, VA expects nearly 30,000 vouchers to be in veterans' hands. Another 10,000 housing vouchers are expected to be included in the fiscal year (FY) 2011 budget.
 
HUD-VASH was designed to address the needs of the most vulnerable homeless veterans. To be eligible for the program, veterans must: be VA health care-eligible, homeless, and need and participate in case management services in order to obtain and sustain permanent independent community housing.

Department of Labor
Veterans' Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS)

Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP)
HVRP grants are intended to address two objectives: (1) to provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force, and (2) to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless veterans.

Successful applicants design programs that assist eligible veterans by providing job placement services, job training, counseling, supportive services, and other assistance to expedite the reintegration of homeless veterans into the labor force.

In FY 2010, DOL-VETS funded the HVRP at $36 million. Recent program focuses include incarcerated veterans and homeless female veterans.

The Incarcerated Veterans Transition Program (IVTP), which is funded through the HVRP, is designed to support incarcerated veterans "at risk" of homelessness by providing direct services through a case management and counseling approach. Projects that provide services to veterans at one or more levels of the correctional system – i.e. federal, state and/or local – may receive funding.

Eligible HVRP applicants are state and local workforce investment boards; public agencies (state, county and city levels); for-profit/commercial entities; and nonprofit organizations including faith-based and community organizations. 501(c)(4) nonprofit organizations are ineliglble for funding.

All HVRP grants are competitively awarded on an annual basis with optional year funding (2 years), based on the availability of funds and satisfactory performance.

For more information on the HVRP, click here.

Stand Down Events
"Stand Down" events are held in a locality, usually for one to three days, where services are provided to homeless veterans along with shelter, meals, clothing, employment services and medical attention. These events are mostly all-volunteer efforts that are organized within a community and bring together services providers including VA; HUD; the local Continuum of Care; veterans service organizations; military personnel; civic leaderes; and other interested individuals, groups and organizations.

HVRP grantees and sub-awardees are responsible for participating in Stand Down events. Each grantee is expected to apply separately for the authorization to obligate and expend up to $10,000 per year for such an event.
 
Application packet content requirements are as follows:

  • Cover letter requesting funds
  • SF 424
  • SF 424A
  • Budget narrative
  • Letters of support (especially from DVOP/LVERs, VA, HUD, and veterans service organizations)

Funding must be used to enhance employment and training opportunities, or promote “self-sustainment” for homeless veterans. Funds may be used for food items, prepared meals, bottled water, clothing (including shoes, boots, underwear, socks, coats), sleeping bags, personal hygiene care kits, facility and tent rentals, transportation to and from the Stand Down, event publicity, etc.

Send the completed application packet to your VETS State Director for consideration – a list of state directors is available here. The VETS State Director makes recommendations and forwards applications to the Regional Office, which then submits them to the DOL-VETS National Office in Washington, D.C.

For those interested in organizing a Stand Down event with grant funding, more technical information about the application process and allowable program expenses is included below:

Veterans Workforce Investment Program (VWIP)
VWIP grants meet the needs for workforce investment activities of veterans with service-connected disabilities, veterans who have significant barriers to employment, veterans who served on active duty in the Armed Forces during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized, and recently separated veterans within 48 months of discharge (under conditions other than dishonorable).

DOL is authorized to competitively award VWIP grants to public agencies, state and workforce investment boards, and private nonprofit organizations (including faith-based and neighborhood partnerships) that the Secretary determines to have an understanding of the unemployment problems of veterans, familiarity with the area to be served, linkages with One-Stop Career Centers, and the capability to administer a program of workforce investment activities for such veterans effectively.

For more information, visit the DOL-VETS website.

In-Kind Resources

In-kind resources are material and human resource contributions with a discernable cash value that are donated to organizations. Donations may be in the form of equipment, food and clothing, furnishings, labor (such as carpentry, plumbing and roofing work), services (such as photography and publicity, medical assistance provided by licensed professionals, or instruction by certified teachers or educational institutions), office machines and supplies, and other property or real estate.

Adobe Software Donation Program
Adobe Systems Inc., in partnership with Tech Soup, has made several software programs available to qualified non-profits. Adobe’s product offerings include individual software (Acrobat Professional, Authorware, InDesign, Photoshop Elements, and Premiere Elements) and Suite Software (Creative Suite 3 Design Premium). Through TechSoup Stock, qualified organizations may order either four separate Adobe products or a single suite product. All product offerings are subject to availability.

Feeding America
Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest) is the nation's largest charitable hunger-relief organization. It annually secures and distributes more than 2 billion pounds of food and grocery products donated from many of the largest companies in the industry to a network of more than 200 member food banks and food-rescue organizations serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Good360 (formerly Gifts In Kind International)
Good360 receives donations from thousands of large and small companies, including half of the Fortune 100 technology, retail and consumer corporations. They distribute these donations to more than 150,000 community charities across the United States and throughout the world. There is no membership fee to join Good360.

Microsoft Software Donation
In addition to cash assistance provided through Microsoft Unlimited Potential (UP) grants, Microsoft also donates the latest software technology to eligible nonprofit organizations around the world. Microsoft's software donations are demand-driven, based on the requests of individual nonprofits to meet their organizational needs.

All software donation requests within the United States are handled by TechSoup. Eligible organizations may make one donation request each year. There is no membership fee to access TechSoup, but a small administrative fee from TechSoup will apply to each order.

Taproot Foundation
Unlike traditional foundations that make cash grants, the Taproot Foundation makes grants of high-quality, professional consulting services, called Service Grants. These Service Grants provide high-potential nonprofit organizations with the tools and services necessary to maximize the impact of their critical work in the community. Each Service Grant is executed by a team of professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to help the community.

Service Grants are only available to nonprofits in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Washington, D.C., area.

Tech Soup
TechSoup.org offers nonprofits a one-stop resource for technology needs by providing free information, resources, and support.

Stand Down

The original Stand Down for homeless veterans was modeled after the Stand Down concept used during the Vietnam War to provide a safe retreat for units returning from combat operations. At secure base camp areas, troops were able to take care of personal hygiene, get clean uniforms, enjoy warm meals, receive medical and dental care, mail and receive letters, and enjoy the camaraderie of friends in a safe environment. Stand Down afforded battle-weary soldiers the opportunity to renew their spirit, health and overall sense of well-being.

That is the purpose of the Stand Down for homeless veterans, and achieving those objectives requires a wide range of support services and time. The program is successful because it brings these services to one location, making them more accessible to homeless veterans.

In July 2002, the founders of Stand Down – Robert Van Keuren, Dr. Jon Nachison and Vietnam Veterans of San Diego – asked the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) to become the “keeper of the flame” and provide national leadership for the movement. Since the first Stand Down in San Diego in 1988, the program has become recognized as the most valuable outreach tool to help homeless veterans in the nation today.

HOW TO START A HOMELESS VETERAN PROGRAM


DETERMINE NEED

Gather data from

  • Homeless Coordinator at VA Medical Center nearest you
  • Your city, county or state's Homeless Coalition (click here for the most recent CHALENG report)
  • Local service providers
  • Police
  • Formerly homeless veterans
  • Your state's homeless coordinator (usually appointed by Governor)

Answer questions

  • How many homeless are there?
  • How many of those are veterans?
  • What services are currently available?
  • What services are missing in order to break the cycle of homelessness?
  • What are the short-, medium- and long-range needs?
  • What resources are available?
  • What additional resources are needed?
  • Who is involved now?
  • Who could/should be involved?

Most of this information can be found in the CHALENG report.

Visit or talk to other homeless veteran programs

NCHV has a list of providers throughout the nation that can be used as contacts. Click here to locate community-based service providers in your area.

Involve Others

Select an organizing committee of individuals that might be interested in attacking this issue. At this stage, it's wise to select individuals that can see the big picture and the long road. Individuals that are doers have a hard time during the development stage sitting around talking and planning. They want to be doing, not talking! Click here for our fact sheet on collaboration.

Develop

  • Mission
  • Goals and objectives
  • Business plan
  • Resource plan – e.g. people, things, money that you will need
  • Budget
  • Bylaws
  • Program guidelines

Test

  • Is there enough commitment to make the plan work?
  • Is there enough access to resources to make plan work?
  • Is your plan meeting the needs of homeless veterans within your community?

LEARN ABOUT NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION MANAGEMENT

Management

Effective Board Development

  • Board of Directors
    • Risks, responsibilities, recruitment, demographics and client representation
    • Committee structure
    • Tenure
    • Executive committee

Financial Management

  • Tips for Grantseeking
    • Restricted funds versus unrestricted funds
    • IRS 990 filing requirements
    • Charitable solicitation requirements
    • Director and officer liability insurance

Annual Reports

Apply for 501(c)(3) IRS tax-exempt status

  • Obtaining a 501(c)(3) status gives the organization access to grants from federal and state governments, as well as private and corporate foundations.
  • The process takes 2-6 months, from filling out an application to receiving ruling from the IRS. The complete process is described here.
  • It will be necessary to have a mission, business plan, budget, bylaws and a board of directors before applying.
  • Each state has different requirements to become a nonprofit organization. Check these requirements prior to completing IRS application.

Participate in Local Homeless Coalitions

Develop partnerships that will assist in meeting the needs of homeless veterans.

  • Often local coalitions assign or influence the priorities for government funds. If you are not at the table, you will be less likely to receive a share.

Develop a Public Education and Marketing Campaign

  • Brochures or one-piece information "fact sheets" are helpful to educate or request investments from the community. Make sure yours look professional and answer the basic who, what, where, when, why and how questions.
  • Prepare several individuals to be speakers for the organization. Educating the community often happens at organization meetings, and you need a representative that can face an audience and gain their support.
