HVRP

HOMELESS VETERANS'

REINTEGRATION PROGRAM

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) is an employment-focused competitive Federal grant program created to enable America’s veterans to reach their full employment potential and obtain high-quality career outcomes for veterans experiencing homelessness. The program also encompasses the Incarcerated Veterans’ Transition Program (IVTP), and the Homeless Women Veterans’ and Homeless Veterans’ with Children Reintegration Program (HWVHVWC) – referred to collectively as HVRP.

Upon enrollment, participants will be connected to supportive services regarding housing, transportation, VA benefits, and more. In addition, participants will receive career-related services to assist them with obtaining the training and education necessary to re-enter and be successful in the labor force – including resume preparation, interview skills, conflict resolution, and more.

The program serves the following counties in the state of Georgia:

  • Bartow County
  • Carroll County
  • Chattooga County
  • Coweta County
  • Floyd County
  • Gordon County
  • Haralson County
  • Paulding County
  • Polk County

ELIGIBILITY

Veterans served by this program include:

  1. Homeless veterans (including veterans who were homeless, but have found housing during the 60-day period preceding the date on which the veteran begins to participate in the program);
  2. Veterans who, at the time of enrollment in the program, are “at risk” of homelessness within the next 60 days;
  3. Veterans participating in the Department of Veterans Affairs supported housing program for which rental assistance is provided pursuant to section 8(o)(19) of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. § 1437f(o)(19)); the Tribal HUD–VA Supportive Housing (Tribal HUD–VASH) program; or veterans participating in the Department of Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program authorized in 38 U.S.C. § 2044;

Veterans Transitioning from Incarceration include:

  • A veteran who is a resident of a penal institution, or an institution that provides long-term care for mental illness; and
  • Is at risk of homelessness absent referral and counseling services provided under the program.

Veterans Recently Released from Incarceration:

For the purposes of determining a veteran’s eligibility for the HVRP programs, VETS considers “recently released from incarceration” to mean a veteran released from incarceration in the last 12 months who is “at risk of homelessness.”

At Risk of Homelessness:

For the purposes of determining a veteran’s “at risk of homelessness” status, the individual or family:

  • Has income below 30 percent of the median income for the geographic area;
  • Has insufficient resources immediately available to attain housing stability; and
    • Has moved frequently because of economic reasons;
    • Is living in the home of another because of economic hardship;
    • Has been notified that their right to occupy their current housing or living situation will be terminated;
