New Housing Assistance For Homeless Vets and Their Families:
A collaborative of non-profit organizations in Delaware have been awarded a Supportive Services for Veterans and Their Families (SSVF) grant to provide homeless prevention and rapid re-housing services to homeless and at-risk of homeless Veterans and their families. The collaborative is made up of Connections Community Support Programs, Catholic Charities, Delaware Center for Homeless Veterans, Peoples Place, and the Homeless Planning Council of Delaware. The award is in the amount of $847,004. Future announcements will be made on how this program will be implemented within the State of Delaware. Under the grant, homeless providers will offer Veterans and their family members outreach, case management, assistance in obtaining VA benefits and assistance in getting other public benefits. Community-based groups can offer temporary financial assistance on behalf of Veterans for rent payments, utility payments, security deposits and moving costs.
