VA RIN: 2900-AP54 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: VA Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program 
Abstract:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is proposing to amend its regulations concerning the VA Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program (GPD). These amendments would provide GPD with increased flexibility to:  (1) respond to the changing needs of homeless veterans; (2) repurpose existing and future funds more efficiently; and (3) allow grant providers the ability to add, modify, or eliminate components of funded programs. We are proposing these amendments to better serve our homeless veteran population and the grantees who serve them.

Statement of Need:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its regulations concerning the VA Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program (GPD) to better serve our homeless veteran population and the grantees who serve them.  For example, VA is proposing to increase flexibility for transitioning homeless veterans into permanent housing, such as by recognizing "bridge housing", a short-term housing option for veterans who have accepted a permanent housing placement that is not immediately available.
