Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program (HVRP) Grant Applications Due

The U.S. Department of Labor Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) announces a grant competition to expedite the reintegration of homeless veterans into the labor force, under the Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program (HVRP).
The deadline for grant applications is May 03, 2013. 
 HVRP grants are intended to address two objectives:

  • Provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force, and 
  • 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 placement services, job training, counseling, supportive services, and other assistance.
There is no prescribed or mandatory model for applicants to specifically adhere to; however, applicants must address all of the operational, administrative, and financial requirements described within this 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.
Awards will range from  $100,000 to $300,000.
