Dept. of Labor Puts $12 Mil in Grants For Vets

US Department of LaborUS Department of Labor announces availability of approximately $12 million in grants to provide job training services for more than 6,000 veterans

WASHINGTON– The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the availability of approximately $12 million in grants through the Veterans’ Workforce Investment Program to provide job training and skills development services that will help approximately 6,000 veterans succeed in civilian careers. 

“These men and women served our country, and now it is our turn to serve them and to support them.  The grants announced today will help ensure our nation’s veterans receive the assistance they need as they make the transition to civilian life,” Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis said.

Through funds provided by this program, veterans will receive skills assessments, individual job counseling, labor market information, classroom or on-the-job training, skills upgrades, placement assistance and crucial follow-up services. Veterans also may be eligible for services through other Workforce Investment Act programs for economically disadvantaged or dislocated workers.

The department will award at least 10 grants in 10 states on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit– including faith-based and community – organizations. Grantees must be familiar with the areas and populations to be served, and have demonstrated that they can administer effective programs.
