Excess Property for Homeless Veterans Initiative

The Excess Property for Homeless Veterans Initiativeprovides for the distribution of federal excess personal property such as sleeping bags, hats, coats, footwear, and other items to Veterans experiencing homelessness. The majority of this surplus property is distributed at Stand Downs by VA and its community partners serving Veterans experiencing homelessness and their families.

Non-profit organizations providing services for homeless Veterans are the eligible applicants for the program. Veterans experiencing homelessness and their families are the primary beneficiaries of this program. Excess federal property is given as it becomes available to the VA who then determines the route of distribution, mostly through Stand Down events.
