This is a PRE-SOLICITATION notice. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Network Contract Office (NCO) 22-G intends to award a non-personnel services contract to provide care, treatment, and rehabilitative services, including case management services; and therapeutic transitional housing assistance for the Health Care for Homeless Veterans Programs (HCHV).

The central goal of the HCHV program is to reduce homelessness among Veterans by conducting outreach to those who are the most vulnerable and who are not currently receiving VA services, and then engaging them in treatment and rehabilitation as well as in other VA programs and non-VA community programs that provide prevention and support services.

The HCHV program was developed from the original Homeless Chronically Mentally Ill (HCMI) Program, a six month pilot project, established February 12, 1987.

In recent years, VA s effort to eliminate Veteran homelessness has led to the development of a range of additional programs and initiatives implemented by VHA Central Office, Office of Clinical Operations, and Homeless Programs Office. Additionally, programs such as Department of Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) have been expanded to include programmatic components that address the gaps in services for homeless Veterans. Because HCHV programs typically are the first to make contact with homeless Veterans, they frequently serve as the entry point for these services and thus, provide VA a way to outreach, assist, and offer homeless Veterans an Open Door to the continuum of VA services.

In addition to this core mission, HCHV functions as a mechanism to contract with providers for community-based residential treatment for homeless Veterans.

Because the least disruptive and most economically efficient way to end homelessness is to prevent its occurrence, VA has expanded its homeless initiatives to include support services aimed at the prevention of homelessness. Unlike VA s traditional homeless programs, which focus on treatment and rehabilitation of the individual Veteran, prevention services address those Veterans and their families who are at immediate risk for becoming homeless or who have recently become homeless. This group includes Veterans recently released from prison or who are otherwise involved with the criminal justice system. HCHV programs are well positioned to assist these Veterans in accessing the appropriate level of services through other VA programs and non-VA community programs.

The HCHV program is vital for providing a gateway to VA and community-based supportive services for eligible Veterans who are homeless. This includes ensuring that chronically homeless Veterans and/or those with serious mental health diagnoses can be placed in community-based programs that provide quality housing and services that meet the needs of these special populations.
