Grants ranging up to $1 million to coordinate and provide supportive services to very low income veteran families. The purpose of this funding is to increase housing stability for low-income veteran families who are residing in permanent housing. Funding is provided for housing counseling and temporary financial assistance for childcare, transportation, rental assistance, utility fee payment assistance, security deposits, utility deposits, moving costs, and emergency supplies. Supportive services should also connect and refer participants to community resources and benefits and help develop a plan for preventing future homelessness.

The families eligible for services include those that: are residing in permanent housing, are homeless and are due to become residents of permanent housing within a specified time, and/or will be leaving or have left permanent housing and are seeking alternative housing responsive to their needs.
