The U.S. Department of Labor has granted nearly $27 million in funds, to help thousands of veterans succeed in civilian careers through job training programs.
Depending on the program, veteran job training will include some to all of the following.
- Job counseling
- Skills assessments and upgrading
- Classroom or on-the-job occupational training
- Job search and placement assistance
- Follow-up services
The grants are awarded under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Workforce Investment Program (VWIP) and Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP).
State and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations, are to administer veteran job training programs funded by the grants.
