Supportive Services for Veteran Families

The Supportive Services for Veteran Families program (SSVF) assists Veterans who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness end their housing crisis and stabilize in housing. There are two primary forms of assistance:

  • Homelessness Prevention – Homelessness prevention assistance is intended for eligible Veteran families who are imminently at-risk of becoming literally homeless but for SSVF assistance. Targeting SSVF assistance in this manner helps ensure limited SSVF resources are directed to Veteran families most in need of assistance to avoid falling into literal homelessness (e.g., entering an emergency shelter).

 

  • Rapid Re-housing – Rapid re-housing assistance is intended for eligible Veteran families who are literally homeless and may remain literally homeless but for SSVF assistance. Targeting SSVF assistance in this manner helps ensure limited SSVF resources are directed to Veteran families most in need of assistance to end their homelessness (e.g., exit an emergency shelter and obtain their own housing).
