March 23 (development) and March 29 (financing)

Since the first Stand Down in 1988, the program has become a catalyst for homeless veterans seeking reintegration into society through improved job readiness and access to employment opportunities. In 2010, more than 160 organizations across the country partnered with local businesses, government agencies, and community- and faith-based service providers to hold Stand Down events for homeless veterans and their families. Now, with support from the U.S. Department of Labor-Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS), organizations can continue these vital services for homeless veterans through fiscal year (FY) 2011.

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) will hold two separate teleconferences on program development (March 23) and financing (March 29) in order to promote effective and efficient Stand Downs.

Please see below for teleconference descriptions and registration information; each call is targeted to a different audience.

  • “Stand Down: Development and Innovative Practices”
    Wednesday, March 23, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. EDT
  • “Stand Down: Financing and Budgeting”
    Tuesday, March 29, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. EDT

1. Stand Down: Development and Innovative Practices

On Wednesday, March 23, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. EDT, NCHV will host the first of two teleconferences on Stand Down. This introductory call will focus on the structure of Stand Down, changes in the DOL-VETS solicitation for grant applications (SGA), and innovative practices used by experienced program organizers. While there is no set formula for constructing a Stand Down, some features and processes are crucial to developing and facilitating a productive and useful event. Baylee Crone, NCHV Director of Technical Assistance, will be joined by Ed Speller, Executive Director of Philadelphia Stand Down, to lead this discussion, with ample time left at the end for questions and comments.

Organizations that are new applicants or that would like more information about applying for DOL-VETS Stand Down funds in FY 2011 are encouraged to participate.

Planning and executing an effective Stand Down requires creative and targeted fundraising strategies.

Baylee Crone, NCHV Director of Technical Assistance, will be joined by A Harrison, COO of the South Atlantic Center for Veterans Education and Training, with ample time left at the end for questions and comments.
