SSVF - Deposit and Rent Assistance

SSVF (Supportive Services for Veteran Families) Grants provide deposit and rent assistance, as well as emergency housing through hotel vouchers  to homeless veterans and their families.

This Grant Program was founded on the principle that every Veteran has a right to housing. SSVF Grants provide support at a community level to end and prevent homelessness among Veterans and their families. These programs are committed to providing this assistance through outreach, case-management, assistance in obtaining benefits and emergency financial resources.

There are two SSVF Grant providers in Santa Cruz County. They are the Veterans Resource Center (VRC) and the Homeless Services Center (HSC).

The Santa Cruz Veterans Resource Center is in contact with local, county and state governments and play an active role in identifying the needs of the veterans in the community.

The center provides access to transitional shelters, permanent housing programs, and employment support.
