Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)
Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) offers a wide range of supportive services to veteran households with limited incomes, including housing stability services and both VA and non-VA services that support family well-being. Housing stability includes preventing the loss of current housing and, when needed, finding alternate housing that is both safe and affordable.
For eligible individuals and families with restricted incomes, this program offers a way to catch up on past due telephone bills, including a cell phone or Internet bill threatening the loss of service. To receive short-term financial assistance, you may be advised to change your service plan(s) to a more cost-effective option.
