In an effort to get more Veterans off the streets, to help Veterans at risk of becoming homeless, and to minimize the population in congregate settings (Shelters and Grant Per Diem facilities) the Veterans Administration has made nearly three million dollars available for Veterans living in Montana and Wyoming through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, operated by Volunteers of America.
.

Along with the funds comes temporary qualification and rule changes: re-enrolment of Veterans previously exited from the program, a temporary waving of the enrollment limitation length, changes to the limitations for transitional accommodations before permanent housing is found, and an allowance for a COVID-19 friendly remote intake process.
.

Veterans currently or who are facing imminent homelessness should call Volunteers of America at 1.844.4.VOA.Vet to speak with a service coordinator today.
.

Volunteers of America, with a mission to help those in need, operates Supportive Services for Veteran Families in every county of Montana and Wyoming to ensure those who served the country are cared for with programs to empower them to build happy and healthy lives. Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. staff are available in Billings, Bozeman, Great Falls, Helena, Kalispell, and Missoula, Montana, as well as Casper, Cheyenne, Gillette, Riverton, Rock Springs, and Sheridan, Wyoming.
.

A pre-qualification form is available on their website at https://www.voanr.org/pre-qualify.
