Supportive Services for Veteran Families

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program focuses on rapid rehousing and homelessness prevention services. TAC supports SSVF grantees and communities throughout the country, coordinating and delivering specialized training, site visits, and consultation. In 2016, nearly 4 in 5 Veterans helped by SSVF successfully ended their homelessness and moved into permanent housing. Since the inception of the SSVF program in 2011, TAC has provided remote and group trainings, tools, and curricula to support grantee operations and growth. As the field has become more sophisticated, we have added support for broader community planning efforts, implementation of promising practices, the use of resource and demand analysis to inform program operations, and meeting the federal criteria and benchmarks for ending Veteran homelessness. National Rapid Rehousing Institutes organized by TAC and partners in 2017, 2018, and 2019 supported SSVF grantees and other practitioners seeking to make RRH a key component of their efforts. TAC also provides strategic policy support and direct training to the SSVF Program Office.
