Families selected for participation in the FSS program will be current recipients of the HCV Program. Selections are made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin.
The VHA will not discriminate against otherwise qualified persons because of their disabilities and will make reasonable accommodations to the person’s disability to allow participation in the program. The HA may decide that an accommodation is not reasonable if it causes undue financial and/or administrative burdens.
The VHA may, at its discretion, screen new FSS participants for interest and motivation factors that solely measure the family’s interest to participate in the FSS program. The HA gives an FSS selection preference in the following order:
- Incoming portable transfers (with active FSS contracts and in good standing with their current HA) on a case by case basis
- Assisted HCV participants
- A family who previously participated in the FSS program and voluntarily withdrew for good cause, in good standing, will be reconsidered on a case by case basis
Re-entry into the FSS program is at the sole discretion of the HA.
