U.S. Department of Labor: Homeless Veterans Reintegration ProgramDeadline: May 12, 2015
The purpose of the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) is 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 employment of eligible homeless veterans by providing job-driven training, placement services, counseling, supportive services, and other assistance. Applicants are encouraged to design a program that addresses the multitude of challenges associated with homeless veterans and one that is responsive to the employment and support service needs within the local community. Applicants must actively engage with industry, employers, and employer associations to identify the skills needed for in-demand jobs and careers. Applications will fall into one of two categories: Urban or Non-Urban geographical areas.
Amount: Approximately $4 million will be available. Urban grants will range from $100,000-$300,000 and Non-Urban grants will range from $100,000-$200,000.
Eligibility: State and local Workforce Investment Boards (SWIBs/LWIBs); public agencies, meaning any agency of a state or of a general purpose political subdivision of a state that has the power to levy taxes and spend funds, as well as general corporate and police powers; Native American tribal governments (federally recognized) and Native American tribal organizations (other than federally recognized tribal governments); for-profit/commercial entities; and non-profit organizations, including community and faith-based organizations.
