Brochures and Fact Sheets
The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) publishes brochures and fact sheets that offer guidance on starting a homeless veteran assistance program, organization management and financial management issues. These are available for download as PDFs so they may be copied and folded.
NCHV offers teleconferences throughout the year on topics such as federal homeless veteran grant programs, employment and financial issues, and supportive housing. There is no cost to participate in these calls. Post-conference notes are published shortly after each call with links to download presentations, if available.
NCHV provides concise, practical briefs on the latest research and reports relevant to HVRP grantees. These research briefs highlight critical insights from new and emerging research, tools, data, and resources from the field that can benefit and improve HVRP grantee programs. The TA Center will post these resources and summaries on a weekly basis. These summaries will provide information and additional reading materials that can directly impact HVRP grantee service delivery models.
Helping homeless veterans find and maintain gainful employment is critical to their success in overcoming homelessness. NCHV provides numerous resources to improve the employment assistance offered by service providers, as well as the job search process for veterans.
