$25 Million in Training Grants to Benefit Approximately 15,000 Veterans

Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis announced the creation of 98 grants, totaling more than $25 million, to provide approximately 15,000 veterans with job training to help them succeed in civilian careers. The grants are being awarded under the U.S. Department of Labor's Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP).

"This funding will help veterans across the country access the resources they need to find good jobs and build a bright future for themselves and their families," Solis said.

Funds are being awarded on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies, and nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations. These agencies are familiar with the areas and populations to be served and have demonstrated that they can administer effective programs.

The funds are being distributed nationwide through 50 new grants and 48 continuing grants receiving second- and third-year funding. Homeless veterans may receive occupational, classroom, on-the-job training, job search placement assistance, and follow-up services.
