Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP)
The Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) helps Veterans experiencing homelessness gain meaningful employment and increases the efficiency of collaborations across all programs serving Veterans experiencing homelessness.
HVRP is the only federal program that works specifically on employment issues for Veterans experiencing homelessness while using a client-centered case management model to connect Veterans with other social services and benefits. Grant funded activities implemented by service providers include job placement, career counseling, job training programs and workshops, education/literacy workshops and resume writing. Case managers also work with Veterans to ensure that they are accessing the full spectrum of mainstream benefits and educational opportunities available to them from federal, state, and local sources.
State and Local Workforce Investment Boards, public entities, and non-profits are eligible for this funding.
Homeless Veterans who were honorably discharged are eligible to receive benefits.
Funds are distributed by the Veterans Employment and Training Services office of the Department of Labor directly to eligible applicants annually with a one-year grant period. Applicants may apply for funding in the following two years.
