On December 30, 2019, VA’s Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program published a Per Diem Only (PDO) NOFA in the Federal Register.  This NOFA provides funding opportunities for eligible organizations to provide transitional housing beds and/or service centers for Veterans who are homeless or at risk for becoming homeless.  This NOFA is competitive and interested applicants are urged to closely review the NOFA and associated technical assistance materials provided on the GPD website at https://www.va.gov/HOMELESS/GPD.asp.  Technical assistance products include two pre-recorded webinars that will inform applicants, VA staff, Continuums of Care and other stakeholders about the NOFA, how to apply and the GPD transitional housing models and service centers.

Awards are for services to begin October 1, 2020.  Current awards for all PDO grantees expire on September 30, 2020.  Applicants wishing to continue receiving per diem funds after this date would need to successfully apply under the FY 2020 NOFA.  The application deadline is March 2, 2020 by 4pm eastern.
