This month, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced approximately $5 million in grants per year (for up to two years) to help veterans experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
The funds are available through VA’s Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program, which offers financial assistance to eligible community organizations that provide veterans with transitional housing and case management.
Only the 16 existing special need grantees are eligible to apply. These special needs grants support homeless veterans who are women, elderly, terminally ill, chronically mentally ill, or who have care of minor dependents.
Applications are due no later than 4 p.m. ET on April 15.
