U.S. Department of Labor Announces Award of $48.1 Million In Grants for Workforce Reintegration of Homeless Veterans

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta today announced the awarding of 149 Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program (HVRP) grants totaling $48.1 million. This funding will provide workforce reintegration services for more than 18,000 homeless veterans.

The Department will award funds on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, tribal governments, and faith-based and community organizations. Homeless veterans may receive occupational skills, apprenticeship opportunities, and on-the-job training as well as job search and placement assistance.

This year's HRVP awards provide 51 first-year grants totaling $16.9 million. Previous awardees will receive first- and second-option year grants totaling $31.2 million.

Grantees in the HVRP program will network and coordinate their efforts with other federal programs such as the Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development Continuum of Care program.

More information on the Department's unemployment and re-employment programs for veterans is available at www.dol.gov/vets. For questions about these grant awards, please contact the Department's Kia Mason at (202) 693-2606 and for more information about the Department's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) please visit www.veterans.gov or follow on twitter @VETS_DOL
