New Homeless Veteran Reintegration Program Grants

U.S. Department of LaborGrants available from US Labor Department to provide job training, employment services for 2,600 homeless veterans

Groups nationwide invited to compete for up to $5 million in funds

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the availability of up to $5 million to fund 16 or more Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program grants. Approximately 2,600 veterans will receive job training and related services to help them succeed in civilian careers.

“Every day, our service members and their families make tremendous sacrifices for their country. Although homelessness among veterans has fallen, too many of our heroes still are without jobs or homes,” said acting Secretary of Labor Seth D. Harris. “Through these grants, the Labor Department will provide those who have served our nation with the opportunity for a fresh start and a good job.”

Funds for the grants will be awarded on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, public agencies, nonprofit organizations, tribal governments, and faith-based and community organizations. Because these groups are intimately connected with their local economies and the needs of homeless veterans, they can offer occupational, classroom and on-the-job training, as well as job search and placement assistance, including follow-up services. Awards will range from $100,000 to $300,000 each.

HVRP is recognized as extraordinarily efficient and effective, and is the only federal program that focuses exclusively on the employment of homeless veterans.

The solicitation for grant applications is available at http://www.grants.gov. For more information, visit that site and http://www.dol.gov/vets, or contact grants officer Cassandra Mitchell at 202-693-4570.
