The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announces the availability of one-year renewal funding for the 16 currently-operational fiscal year (FY) 2016 VA Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program Special Need Grant recipients and their collaborative VA Special Need partners (as applicable), to enable them to submit renewal applications for assistance under the Special Need Grant component of VA’s Homeless Providers GPD Program. The focus of this NOFA is to encourage applicants to continue to deliver services to the homeless special-need veteran population.

Eligible applicants must be a currently-operational FY 2016 VA Homeless Providers GPD Program Special Need Grant recipient with or without a collaborative VA Special Need partner. Applicants that were not funded under the VA Homeless Providers GPD Program NOFA as published in the Federal Register on Dec. 23, 2016, are ineligible for an award under this NOFA as the applicant must have an operational VA Homeless Providers GPD grant on Oct. 1, 2017, in order to receive Special Need funding under this availability. Furthermore, if the applicant currently has a collaborative project and its VA partner no longer wishes to continue, the applicant is not eligible for an award under
this NOFA.

Applications must be received by the GPD Program Office by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on June 29, 2017.
