SUPPORTIVE SERVICES FOR VETERAN FAMILIES (SSVF) PROGRAM

The SSVF Program focuses on securing or maintaining existing housing for Veteran households who are currently homeless or are at risk of losing housing and becoming homeless “but for” SSVF assistance.  Client-centered case management and other services (employment, housing counseling, financial education, health and dental care, mental health, substance abuse counseling, etc.) are provided to  ensure Veterans receive the ongoing attention and care they need.  Short-term financial assistance (legal, child care, transportation, security payments, rental assistance, utility payments and moving costs) may be available to eligible Veteran Families to assist in gaining housing stability and remaining stably housed after this temporary assistance ends.

SSVF Eligibility Requirements:

  • Individual/Head of household or his/her spouse must be a United States Veteran who served in active military, naval, or air service and discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.
  • Individual/Family must fall below 50% of Area Median Income.

deficiency syndrome (AIDS) or related diseases) and their families.

Applicants must have documented proof of a long-term disability resulting mainly from
serious mental illness, alcohol and/or drug abuse, or an HIV positive medical condition.
