VA to award more than $30 million in new grants to support formerly homeless veterans

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will award $30 million under the new Grant and Per Diem (GPD) program Oct. 1, to 128 organizations to provide wraparound supportive services to Veterans who were previously homeless or at-risk of losing their housing.

The GPD case management grants improve housing retention among formerly homeless veterans by providing an array of individualized services that promote housing stability.

“When veterans transition from homelessness to permanent housing, some may need help readjusting to the routines and responsibilities of managing their household affairs,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “The case management grants announced today will help ensure that formerly homeless Veterans have the tools to remain in stable housing and successfully reintegrate back into their communities.”
