    Applications for initial and renewal supportive services grants 
under the SSVF Program must be received by the SSVF Program Office by

to all competing applicants, this deadline is firm as to date and hour, 
and VA will treat as ineligible for consideration any application that 
is received after the deadline. Applicants should take this practice 
into account and make early submission of their materials to avoid any 
risk of loss of eligibility brought about by unanticipated delays, 
computer service outages, or other delivery-related problems.

can be downloaded directly from the SSVF Program Web site at:

electronic versions of the entire application are required. Each 
application copy must (i) be fastened with a binder clip; and (ii) 
contain tabs listing the major sections of and exhibits to the 
application. Each CD must be labeled with the applicant's name and must 
contain an electronic copy of the entire application. A budget template 
must be attached in Excel format on the CD, but all other application 
materials may be attached in a PDF or other format. The application 
copies and CDs must be submitted to the following address: Supportive

being rejected. To encourage the equitable distribution of supportive 
services grants across geographic regions, in accordance with 38 CFR 
62.23(d)(2), an eligible entity may apply for a total of $2 million per 
year in funding per grant. See Section II.C. of this NOFA for maximum
