$52 Million Awarded To Help Homeless Veterans Re-Enter Workforce
The U.S. Department of Labor announced on Tuesday that more than $52 million in grants will be awarded to help homeless veterans.
The grants are meant to help homeless veterans re-enter the workforce and to address the problems homeless veterans are facing.
Veterans’ Employment and Training Service, Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program funding also supports Homeless Female Veteran’s and Veterans with Families program and the Incarcerated Veterans’ Transition Program grants.
VETS designed these programs to provide training, skills development and career support.
“As the nation continues its recovery from the pandemic, initiatives like these are more important than ever,” said Marty Walsh, Secretary of Labor . “Our veterans deserve our best efforts to ensure they have a safe place to live, means to support themselves and their families and opportunities to pursue a fulfilling career.”
The department will award 119 continuation grants totaling more than $40 million and 36 new three-year grant awards totaling more than $12 million to provide a wide range of services to veterans currently homeless or at risk of homelessness.
