Welcome to the Homeless Veteran’s Reintegration Program (HVRP)

Veteran Homelessness Continuums of Care: An Introduction
Starting in 1995, the structure of those grant awards changed. New language in the McKinney-Vento Act required HUD to award funding to entire communities that submitted comprehensive plans to address homelessness collectively. These collective entities are called HUD Continuums of Care (CoCs). They are a way for HUD to streamline and manage the more than 7,000 homeless projects that it funds every year at more than $2 billion.
HVRP Program Guide for Grantees
This HVRP Program Guide for Grantees was developed to provide an overview of the Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP), including the Homeless Female Veterans’ and Veterans with Families Program (HFVVWF), and Incarcerated Veterans’ Transition Program (IVTP). The guide can be used by current HVRP grantees, prospective HVRP applicants, Department of Labor, Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS) staff members, and other interested parties.
