Funding Opportunity Description
On October 13, 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Veterans' Benefits Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-275). Section 201 reauthorizes the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program through fiscal year (FY) 2011 and indicates: “The Secretary of Labor shall conduct, directly or through grant or contract, such programs as the Secretary determines appropriate to provide job training, counseling, and placement services (including job readiness and literacy and skills training) to expedite the reintegration of homeless veterans into the labor force.”
HVRP grants are intended to address two objectives: (1) To provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force, and (2) to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless veterans.
