VA Announces 46 Grants for Homeless Programs

Department Marks 20 Years Serving Homeless Veterans

WASHINGTON (October 18, 2007) - As the Department of Veterans Affairs

(VA) marks the 20th anniversary of its homeless program, VA has awarded

46 grants worth over $16 million to public and private non-profit groups

to assist homeless veterans.

"For the last 20 years, VA has worked with its community partners to

lift veterans out of homelessness," said Gordon H. Mansfield, Acting

Secretary of Veterans Affairs. "We are making progress by expanding

treatment, rehabilitation and safe transitional housing for our homeless

veterans, though more remains to be done."

Based on VA's national estimates, progress is being made for homeless

veterans. The number of homeless veterans on any night has decreased 20

percent during the last six years, and veterans as a percent of the

adult homeless population has decreased 10 percent.

This latest round of grants creates 950 beds for homeless veterans,

bringing to more than 12,000 the number of VA-funded community-based

beds provided by public and community non-profit and faith-based

organizations in 34 states and the District of Columbia.

VA has the largest integrated network of homeless assistance programs in

the country. It is the only federal agency providing substantial

one-on-one contact with the homeless. In many cities and rural areas,

VA social workers and other clinicians conduct extensive outreach

programs, clinical assessments, medical treatment, alcohol and drug

abuse counseling and employment assistance.

More information about VA's homeless programs is available on the

Internet at http://www.va.gov/homeless. A complete list of grants is

also available on the Internet at

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
