    Five Goodwills to Train Homeless Veterans for Jobs with DOL Grants

    Homeless male veteran sits next to signFive Goodwill® agencies were among recipients of the latest round of grants under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program. The agencies collectively earned more than $1 million in funding to help provide homeless veterans with job training to help them succeed in civilian careers.

    “Today, the Department of Labor is taking an important step to help homeless veterans reintegrate into the American labor force,” said Secretary Solis. “This is a complicated challenge that requires an ‘all hands on deck’ response. Our grantees span communities across the country, from the District of Columbia to Puerto Rico, and we salute them for their commitment to assist those who’ve served.”

    Funds were awarded on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and other groups, including faith-based and community organizations. As recipients, Goodwills were deemed familiar with the geographic areas and populations to be served, and have demonstrated that they can provide effective help to homeless veterans.
