Notice of Funding Opportunity for Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program Special Need Grant

By GCP Admin

VA announces the availability of approximately $5 million per year for 3 years in new special need grants to eligible entities for per diem payments to facilitate housing stabilization for Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless and who are in one of the special need populations (i.e., chronically mentally ill, frail elderly, individuals who care for minor dependents, terminally ill or women). This funding will provide assistance to cover operational costs including costs that would not otherwise be incurred, but for the fact that the recipient is providing supportive housing beds in private rooms with private bathrooms for a homeless Veteran population with special needs. VA expects to award per diem for approximately 135 beds across approximately 10-15 grants with this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).
