The TA Center

NCHV’s Technical Assistance (TA) Center provides guidance and support to a national network of community-based service providers; local, state, and federal agencies; and corporate and philanthropic partners who are working to end veteran homelessness. Through a combination of training, technical assistance, and product development, the TA Center works to educate and build the capacity of this varied group of stakeholders. Our approach focuses on strengthening the connection between research and practice. We encourage the use of best practices and promote innovation to address new and recurring challenges.


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.


Do you want to learn more about veteran homelessness issues as they relate to female service members, those returning from OIF/OEF, or even large businesses? The research briefs highlight critical insights surrounding these topics and more through research, tools, data, and resources from the field.


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.
