The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is announcing the availability of funds for assistance under the Per Diem Only component of VA’s Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program. This Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) encourages reapplication for those applicants who seek to continue providing “Transition in Place” (TIP) grants and new applicants that will serve the homeless Veteran population through a TIP housing model to facilitate housing stabilization. Applicants may apply for a minimum of 5 beds and up to a maximum of 25 beds under this NOFA as a part of the effort to end homelessness among our nation’s veterans. This model does not support discharge planning that would have the veteran transition to Housing and Urban Development – VA Supportive Housing (HUD – VASH)
Existing nonprofit organizations recognized as section 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19) nonprofit organizations by the IRS, existing state and local governments, Indian Tribal Governments, and faith-based and community-based organizations that are capable of creating and providing supported transitional housing for homeless veterans are eligible under this NOFA.
VA expects to fund approximately 500 beds over a 2-year period under this NOFA. Approximately $25 million is available to support an average of 25 beds per night, per project. Funding awarded under this NOFA will be for a period of two years.
Applications must be received in the GPD Program Office, by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018.
