Background: The Veterans Advisory Board (VAB) addresses matters affecting local veterans in the City of Santa Fe. The purpose of the Peer Support Specialist is to work with and if possible alleviate catastrophic and unforeseen circumstances on the veteran’s well-being, safety and self-sufficiency. The VAB honors and recognizes the contributions local veterans have made to our community and our nation.


Proposals for the Part-time Peer Support Specialist will be capped at $10,000.00 per year.


Funding will be utilized for a part-time peer support specialist to assist homeless and precariously housed veterans only with accessing basic material goods and services like food and shelter, health, and related crisis services that are available to both veterans and residents. The applying agency will have the ability to vet veterans for veteran eligibility status and also be able to collaborate with local nonprofits, veteran organizations and boards on outreach and care coordination for program participants.


Contracts are for one year with the option to renew for up to 3 years. 

The VAB continues to strategically focus on ensuring that funding is having a direct impact on the overall well-being of veterans and their families within the community. The Board’s intent is to strategically align applicants with results-based outcomes for their service populations. The ultimate goal is to track and compare data and outcomes with local, state and national statistics. 

Applicants are strongly encouraged to collaborate and partner with service providers to measure, track, and demonstrate sustaining impact. 

Applicants shall be limited to local non-profit organizations that have been granted and currently hold tax exempt status under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

 Funding is on a cost reimbursement basis. Payment is made after costs have been incurred and reimbursement has been requested showing that work has been done. 

Reporting requirements are bi-yearly, dates are specified in “exhibit c” of the contract.  Site reviews and/or visits are conducted by City staff members or consultants.  Funded programs may be expected to participate in several training and technical assistance opportunities during the funding year.
