WASHINGTON — Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis today announced 122 grants totaling more than $28 million to provide approximately 17,000 veterans who are homeless or at risk of being homeless with job training to help them succeed in civilian careers.

The grants are being awarded under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program to continue successful programs into second and third years. Funding includes $4,335,775 for the Homeless Female Veterans and Veterans with Families Program and $3,882,443 for the Incarcerated Veterans Transition Program, which helps veterans who have served time in justice facilities.

“The Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program is recognized as an extraordinarily efficient and effective program, and is the only federal program that focuses exclusively on employment of veterans who are homeless,” said Secretary Solis. “I am pleased that the department can assist these veterans and their families.”

Second and third year funds are being awarded to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies
