Department of Labor Announces $5.4 million in Job Training Grants to Benefit Veterans Experiencing Homelessness
August 09, 2011
Twenty-three Department of Labor grants will provide Veterans experiencing homelessness with job training aimed at helping them succeed in civilian careers. The grants are being awarded by the department's Veterans' Employment and Training Service through the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program.
"Too many of our veterans face difficulty making the transition from military service to the civilian labor force, and too many battle homelessness as a result," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "These grants will help more than 3,000 veterans in communities across the country access the resources they need to find good jobs and build bright futures for themselves and their families."
