The U.S. Department of Labor is introducing 23 grants for a totaly $5,436,148 million, dedicated to providing homeless veterans job training in an effort to help them succeed professionally in the civilian sector.

"Too many of our veterans face difficulty making the transition from military service to the civilian labor force, and too many battle homelessness as a result," says Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "These grants will help more than 3,000 veterans in communities across the country access the resources they need to find good jobs and build bright futures for themselves and their families."

The grants, which are will be distributed by the department's Veterans' Employment and Training Service through the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, are competitively awarded to state and local workforce investment boards and local public agencies as well as nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations.
