VA publishes Interim final rule for legal services for homeless veterans grant program

The rule outlines the framework for the program, ensuring access to essential legal support for this vulnerable population.

June 30, 2022

An interim final rule has been published this month by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) which in turn allows the federal agency to enhance the provision of legal services for homeless veterans or veterans experiencing homelessness.

The VA will offer 75 grants in a year with 10% funding dedicated to women veterans only via legal services for homeless veterans and veterans at risk for the homelessness grant program. The first-of-its-kind grant will be entrusted with the responsibility to provide legal services related to housing, family law, income support, criminal defense, and discharge requests.

In September 2022, the Notice of Funding Opportunity will be published.
