SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Funding Opportunity Title: Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program. Announcement Type: Initial. Funding Opportunity Number: VA– SSVF–120517. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number: 64.033, VA Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program. I. Funding Opportunity Description A. Purpose: The SSVF Program’s purpose is to provide supportive PO 00000 Frm 00100 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51483 services grants to private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives, who will coordinate or provide supportive services to very lowincome veteran families who: (i) Are residing in permanent housing; (ii) are homeless and scheduled to become residents of permanent housing within a specified time period; or (iii) after exiting permanent housing within a specified time period, are seeking other housing that is responsive to such very low-income veteran family’s needs and preferences. SSVF prioritizes the delivery of rapid re-housing services to homeless veteran households. Rapid rehousing is an intervention designed to help individuals and families quickly exit homelessness, return to housing in the community, and avoid homelessness again in the near term. The core components of a rapid re-housing program are housing identification, move-in and rent assistance, and rapid re-housing case management and services. These core components represent the minimum that a program must be providing to households to be considered a rapid re-housing program, but do not provide guidance for what constitutes an effective rapid re-housing program. Applicants should familiarize themselves with the Rapid Re-housing Performance Benchmarks and Program Standards found on at www.va.gov/ homeless/ssvf/index.asp. B. Funding Priorities: The principle goal for this NOFA is to provide support to those applicants who demonstrate the greatest capacity to end homelessness among veterans or, in communities that have already met US Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) Federal Criteria and Benchmarks, sustain the gains made in ending homelessness among veterans. Priority will be given to grantees who can demonstrate adoption of evidence-based practices in their application. Under Priority 1, VA will provide funding to those grantees with 3-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in Employment and Community Services: Rapid Rehousing and Homeless Prevention standards, a 4-year accreditation from the Council on Accreditation’s (COA) accreditation in Supported Community Living Services standards, or a 3-year accreditation in The Joint Commission’s (JC) Behavioral Health Care: Housing Support Services Standards. Priority 2 includes existing grantees seeking to renew their grants. C. Definitions: Part 62 of title 38, Code of Federal Regulations (38 CFR part 62), contains definitions of terms used in the SSVF Program. In addition to the definitions and requirements described E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1
