The focus of the SSVF program is to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing.
To become a participant under the SSVF program, the following conditions must be met.
1. A member of the “Veteran family”. Either (a) a Veteran; or (b) a member of a family in which the head of the household is a Veteran, or the spouse of the head of the household, is a Veteran. (Note: The head of the household should be identified by the Veteran family.)
2. “Very low income”. Household income does not exceed 50% of area median income. The median income for the area or community will be determined using the income limits most recently published by the Department of Housing and Urban Development for programs under section 8 of the Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437f), which can be found at http://www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/il.html
