Department Of Labor Awards More Than $5 Million In Job Training Grants To Help 1,900 Homeless Women Veterans, Veterans With Families
August 5, 2013
The Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service today announced the award of 22 grants, totaling more than $5 million, to provide about 1,900 homeless female veterans and veterans with families with job training to help them succeed in civilian careers. The grants are being awarded under the department’s Homeless Female Veterans and Veterans with Families Program.
“These grants will offer the opportunity for a better life, providing the training and skills needed to find a job and housing,” said Secretary of Labor Tom Perez. “Our veterans have sacrificed for our nation, and job training programs offer them a path to participation in society and success in the workplace.”
The services provided by grantees will include job placement, on-the-job and classroom training, career counseling, life skills and money management mentoring, as well as help in finding housing. VETS estimates that these funds will help approximately 1,900 veterans.
Funds are being awarded on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations. These grantees are familiar with the areas and populations to be served and have demonstrated that they can administer effective programs to help homeless veterans.
More information on the Department of Labor’s unemployment and re-employment programs for veterans can be found at www.dol.gov/vets. For more information on these grants contact Cassandra Mitchell at 202-693-4570.
