Harbor Freight Continues Support of National Campaign to End Veteran Homelessness
Through generous contributions to NCHV and U.S. VETS, Harbor Freight exemplifies corporate partnership to house nation's veterans
This Veterans Day, Harbor Freight Tools announced its continued support of the national campaign to end veteran homelessness through generous contributions to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans and U.S. VETS.
A 2017 recipient of the NCHV Outstanding Corporate Partner Award, Harbor Freight has been family owned since it was started in 1977. Harbor Freight offers more than 7,000 tools and accessories at quality levels that match or exceed competing brands, but at prices that are up to 80% less.
Eric Smidt, President and Founder of Harbor Freight, announced: "This Veterans Day, I want to express our deep appreciation and respect for the men and women who have served or are serving in our armed forces, including so many of our Harbor Freight customers and associates and their family members. Whether at home or abroad, they've made an extraordinary sacrifice to serve America. On behalf of our Harbor Freight team, we want to thank our veterans for protecting the rights and freedoms we cherish as Americans. In honor of their service, Harbor Freight Tools Foundation is making contributions to two organizations that support and serve veterans and their families: the United States Veterans Initiative and the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans." 
"NCHV appreciates the ongoing partnership with the Smidt Family and the Harbor Freight Tools team. Their support has helped us make critical strides toward ending veteran homelessness, and I cannot thank them enough for their commitment to our mission," said Kathryn Monet, NCHV CEO.

VA Announces Three Notices of Funding Availability (NOFAs)

SOAR WORKS SAMHSA
Newsflash

Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) released a NOFA for existing SSVF grantees whose grants are scheduled to end by September 30, 2018. Through the SSVF program, grantees will be expected to leverage supportive services grant funds to enhance the housing stability of very low-income Veteran families who are occupying permanent housing. The VA specifically includes the SOAR model in this NOFA:
"Grantees are expected to access the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) program directly by training staff and providing the service or subcontracting services to an organization to provide SOAR services."
We encourage grantees to review the SSVF and SOAR Integration Toolkit for resources on incorporating SOAR into supportive services and community planning efforts. The deadline for this funding opportunity is January 12, 2018 and more information can be found in the Federal Register or the SSVF website

Grant and Per Diem

A second NOFA provides transitional housing beds and supportive services under the VA's Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) program, which is not limited to those who have provided GPD services in the past. The VA expects to fund 1,500 beds with this NOFA for applicants who will use one or a combination of the following housing models: Bridge Housing, Low Demand, Hospital-to-Housing, Clinical Treatment, and Service-Intensive Transitional Housing and Service Centers.
Part of the application process requires eligible entities to collaborate with their local Continuum of Care (CoC) and document their experience with and plan for providing housing and supportive services for homeless Veterans, as well as their role in community planning and coordination. This may be an opportunity for SOAR providers to partner with eligible entities to document local success in increasing access to income and disability benefits for homeless Veterans. The deadline for this funding opportunity is February 28, 2018 and full details can be found in the Federal Register or on the GPD website.

GPD Transition in Place Model 

An additional funding notice from the GPD program is for applicants who will serve homeless Veterans through a Transition in Place (TIP) housing model to facilitate housing stabilization. The VA expects to fund approximately 500 beds over a two-year period under this NOFA. The TIP housing model offers Veteran residents housing in which support services transition out of the residence over time, rather than the resident. This leaves the resident in place at the residence and not forced to find other housing while stabilizing.
As with the above GPD NOFA, applicants are asked to collaborate with their CoCs to document how they will provide supportive services to Veterans, including helping Veterans increase their income and/or benefits. The deadline for this funding opportunity is February 21, 2018 and full details can be found in the Federal Register or on the GPD website
