July 11, 2018 - WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta announced the award of 163 Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program (HVRP) grants totaling $47,600,000. This funding will provide workforce reintegration services to department of labor seal logomore than 18,000 homeless veterans.

"While serving in the military, veterans learn many skills desired in today's workforce," said Secretary Acosta. "These grants will help thousands of homeless veterans reintegrate themselves into society and secure good jobs."

Funds are being awarded 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 training, apprenticeship opportunities, and on-the-job training, as well as job search and placement assistance.

This year's HVRP awards provide 40 first-year grants totaling nearly $13,000,000. Previous awardees will receive first and second option year grants totaling $34,600,000.

Grantees under the HVRP program will 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 more information about the Department's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS), please visit www.veterans.gov or follow on @VETS_DOL twitter.
