DOL – Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program, Incarcerated Veterans’ Transition Program , and the Homeless Female Veterans’ and Veterans’ with Families Program (2020)

Applications Due: April 27, 2020, 4:00 p.m. ET

This program will provide services to reintegrate homeless veterans into the labor force by placing them into family-sustaining employment and to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless veterans. DOL defines family-sustaining employment as paid employment, in line with the homeless veteran’s aspirations, talents, and abilities. Ideally, the employment should provide a family-sustaining wage or, in other words, at least the minimum income necessary for a worker to meet his or her basic financial needs. Legal aid is eligible to subgrant.
