VA to help formerly homeless veterans by inviting applications for $30M case management grants

VA is not only helping homeless veterans to move into permanent housing but also helping them achieve housing stability.

March 2, 2023

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced giving $30 Million as grants in case management and enabling the organizations to help formerly homeless veterans to get into permanent housing and maintain housing stability.

VA’s Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) program provides funding to organizations using which they can hire case managers to help veterans search and obtain permanent housing and overcome challenges and barriers to permanent housing. Besides this, the organizations connect veterans with services to address issues like poor credit history.

VA will award 100 grants of $300,000 each to support 150 case manager positions. The operations will commence from Oct 1, 2023 to Sept 30, 2025 and the funding for the same will be given by awards.

One of the top priorities for the Biden Administration is ending homelessness among veterans. The count of veterans facing homelessness has decreased by 11% since early 2020 and by 55% since 2010. The VA was able to move more than 400,000 homeless veterans into permanent housing in 2022. It also aims to reduce homelessness by 25% for all Americans by 2025.
