The SSVF program was established after Section 604 of the Veterans’ Mental Health and Other Care Improvements Act of 2008, Public Law 110-387, authorized it by Veteran Affairs. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

The YWCA received the supportive services grant to assist Veterans towards housing stability. The VA awards this grant only to non-profits or consumer cooperatives. The goal of the SSVF program is to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing.
