Dept. of Labor Grants $11.53 Mil For Vet Job Training

U.S. Department of LaborWASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today awarded grants totaling $11.53 million through the Veterans’ Workforce Investment Program to provide an estimated 5,500 veterans with job training and skills development services.

“These grants will increase the skill sets of veterans and result in training and credentialing for jobs in high-demand industries,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “Our veterans made sacrifices on behalf of our nation, and I ask all employers to renew their commitment to veterans, because the best way to honor our veterans is to hire them.”

Eleven grants were awarded on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations, in 10 states. These agencies are familiar with the areas and populations to be served, and have demonstrated that they can administer effective programs.

The funds will be used to provide training in fields including software and computer services, construction, auto mechanics, security, logistics, nursing, physical and occupational therapy, hospitality and the culinary arts, among others.

Today’s grants are part of efforts by the department’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service to expand educational opportunities for veterans, support incentives for businesses to hire unemployed veterans, ensure priority “Gold Card” services for veterans through the American Job Center network and help veterans match skills related to their military occupations with those required by civilian jobs.
