Department of Labor: Urban and Non-Urban Homeless Veterans Reintegration ProgramDeadline: May 13, 2014
The Department of Labor intends for the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) grants to address two objectives: to provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force and to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless veterans. Successful applicants will propose programs that expedite the reintegration of eligible homeless veterans into the labor force by providing job-driven training, placement services, counseling, supportive services, and other assistance. There is no prescribed or mandatory model to which applicants must specifically adhere; however, applicants must promote active engagement with industry, employers and employer associations to identify the skills needed for in-demand jobs and careers. Applicants must also address all of the operational, administrative, and financial requirements described within the solicitation. Successful applicants will have demonstrated the ability to address the universal challenges as well as the local or regional problems that have contributed to veteran homelessness and have prevented these veterans from stabilizing their lives and reentering the workforce.
Amount: $6,000,000 is available with 20 awards expected to be made ranging from $100,000-$300,000.
Eligibility: Eligible Applicants Applications for grant funds will be accepted from state and local Workforce Investment Boards (SWIBs/LWIBs), local public agencies, Native American tribal governments (federally recognized), Native American tribal organizations (other than federally recognized tribal governments), for-profit/commercial entities, and non-profit organizations, including faith-based and community-based organizations. Applicants must have a familiarity with the area and population to be served and the ability to administer an effective program that is ready to start immediately upon the first day of the grant award period of performance.
