Grant & Per Diem Program

The VHA's Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program (GPD) is offered annually (as funding permits) to fund community agencies providing services to homeless Veterans. The purpose is to promote the development and provision of supportive housing and/or supportive services with the goal of helping homeless Veterans achieve residential stability, increase their skill levels and/or income, and obtain greater self-determination. Only programs with supportive housing (up to 24 months) or service centers (offering services such as case management, education, crisis intervention, counseling) are eligible for these funds. The program has two levels of funding: Grants - set amount for all services provided, not dependent on length of stay and Per Diem - fees paid for services/residence per day. The social workers in GPD are most often program coordinators or liaisons, serving a vital link between the community service provider and the VHA, and providing oversight for clinical services and fiscal arrangements. The social workers may provide case management, advocacy, resource and referral linkages, crisis counseling, and consultation. They often coordinate the yearly inspections and are responsible for communicating needs and challenges to VHA leadership.
