HVRP is a federal program that awards money to non- and for-profit organizations and government agencies that work to prepare and place veterans experiencing homelessness in jobs.
JVSG provides funding to State Workforce Agencies for staff to provide career services to veterans with significant barriers to employment and to assist employers to fill their workforce needs.
Stand Down events assist veterans experiencing homelessness by providing a wide range of employment, social, and health services. VETS awards these noncompetitive grants on a first-come, first-served basis to support one-day or multi-day events at up to $7,000 or $10,000, respectively. The critical services provided at these events are often the catalyst that enables those individuals to reenter the workforce.
