Veterans Administration announces contracting out for Veteran Case Management
One of the strongest requests coming out of the Housing Placement Bootcamps was to activate the expertise of community providers by contracting out the case management and housing location processes associated with the HUD-VASH Program. There was also the likelihood that contracting services would reduce duplication and delays since providers were already assisting Veterans on those processes.
We are happy to report that Betty Zamos and VISN-22 (which includes the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Administration as well as the Long Beach Veterans Administration) have just released a contracting opportunity to do just that: provide the full case management and housing location services to veterans associated with the HUD-VASH program in FY2012. Organizations will now be able to formally partner with the Veterans Administration to provide Veterans with much needed services.
An informational session for service providers will be held on May 9th, 2012 at 1:00pm. The Conference call line will be 1800-767-1750, CODE 21039. Please submit all questions to BOTH Chelsea.Black@va.gov and Richard.Blume@va.gov prior to this meeting.
