The DELIVER Act includes six bills introduced by Rep. Levin:
- H.R. 7105, Homeless Veteran Coronavirus Response Act (Introduced with Rep. Bilirakis, R-FL)
- The bill allows VA to use existing funds for a wider range of services; authorizes the Department to collaborate with outside organizations to facilitate shelters on its properties; loosens restrictions on Grant and Per Diem (GPD) payments; and requires VA to ensure veterans participating in VA homeless programs have access to VA telehealth services.
- H.R. 2924, Housing for Women Veterans Act (Introduced with Rep. Fitzpatrick, R-PA)
- The bill requires VA to complete an analysis of its programs that provide assistance to women veterans who are homeless or precariously housed to identify the areas in which such programs are failing to meet their needs, and submit a report to Congress.
- H.R. 8275, Reducing Veteran Homelessness Act (Introduced with Rep. McCarthy, R-CA)
- The bill ensures that homeless veterans and their families receive the resources and services they deserve by filling gaps in HUD-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) case management, increasing payments to organizations that house homeless veterans, and reimbursing those organizations for fees to access local Homeless Management Information Systems so they can better track outcomes of homeless veterans.
- H.R. 2398, Veteran HOUSE Act (Introduced with Rep. Peters, D-CA)
- The bill expands the Department of Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program to ensure chronically homeless veterans discharged under conditions other-than-honorable (OTH), but not dishonorable, are eligible for HUD-VASH housing vouchers and supportive case management.
- H.R. 7111, Veterans Economic Recovery Act (Introduced with Rep. Roe, R-TN)
- The centerpiece of the bill is the creation of a rapid retraining program to provide unemployed veterans and reservists with 12 months of educational benefits to pursue training in high-demand occupations. The education benefits available under the rapid retraining program would be equivalent to the benefits provided under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
- H.R. 2326, Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer William "Bill" Mulder (Ret.) Transition Improvement Act of 2019 (Introduced with Rep. Arrington, R-TX)
- The bipartisan bill, first introduced by Representative Arrington in the 115th Congress, would create a pilot program for off-base transition training to make the transition process easier for veterans and spouses by giving them more time to access resources and digest the information provided to them, all while living in their new community. The legislation would also create a grant program for organizations to provide multiple transition assistance services such as resume assistance, interview training, and job recruitment training from a central source.
