PurposeVA announces the availability of approximately $5 million per year for 3 years in 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 funding to pay per diem for approximately 135 beds through this NOFO.

The funding will allow GPD grantees to continue to transform programs and to meet the challenges local communities face when providing services to certain populations of Veterans experiencing homelessness.Each application must include a minimum of five special need beds and up to a maximum of 10 special need beds per VA medical facility catchment area, per each applicant’s Employer Identification Number (EIN).

Each application must propose to serve one special need population.

The various special needs populations are defined in 38 CFR 6 1. 1 and are summarized in this NOFO.Each applicant may request the lesser of 100% of the daily cost of care for furnishing services to homeless Veterans with special needs; or two times the current VA State Home Program per diem rate for domiciliary care as set by the Secretary under 38 United States Code (U.S.C.) 2012 and 38 U.S.C.

1741(a)(1), which at the time of this NOFO publication would be two times $4 9. 91 per day as shown on the GPD program website at the following link:
www.va.gov/homeless/gpd.asp.

The per diem payment calculation may be found at 38 CFR 6 1. 3 3. The maximum amount of per diem requested must not exceed the cost of care or $1,100,000 total costs for the entire 3-year grant period, whichever is less, based on variables such as the average number of beds to be provided as stated in the grant application and the current per diem rate maximum.

Applicants may request no more than the cost of care or $110,000 total costs per bed over the entire 3-year grant period, whichever is less, based on variables such as the average number of beds to be provided as stated in the grant application and the current per diem rate maximum.
