$4M in Training Grants for Veterans Available

The money comes in the form of job-driven grants to help more than 2,000 veterans overcome homelessness and secure employment

The Department of Labor has announced $4 million in funding is available through the Homeless Veteran Reintegration Program, intended to provide an estimated 2,000 veterans with job-driven training for in-demand jobs to help them successfully transition from homelessness to sustainable housing and good civilian jobs.

 

The funds will be awarded on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, and tribal governments, including faith-based and community organizations. Homeless veterans may receive occupational, classroom and on-the-job training, as well as job search and placement assistance, including follow-up services.

 

"Through partnerships and the aggressive delivery of supportive services, we are proving that we can indeed meet President Obama's ambitious goal of ending veterans' homelessness by the end 0f 2015," said Secretary Perez. "There are places where it has already happened. The HVRP has proven time and again that it can be effective in helping veterans overcome obstacles to employment and sustainable housing, and they deserve nothing less."
