Ohio Valley Goodwill Announces Grant Award for Veterans Programs from the U.S. Department of Labor

Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries announces a new grant award of $395,903 for its Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) from the U.S. Department of Labor. The grant is part of $48.1 million in grants for workforce reintegration of homeless veterans from the U.S. Department of Labor. U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta recently announced the awarding of 149 Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) grants totaling $48.1 million. This funding will provide workforce reintegration services for more than 18,000 homeless veterans.

Grantees in the HVRP program will network and coordinate their efforts with other federal programs such as the Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development Continuum of Care program.

For more than twenty-five years, Ohio Valley Goodwill has been providing housing, skill training, employment assistance and case management support for our nation’s veterans and last year alone, served almost 600 veterans in the Greater Cincinnati community. ” We are very pleased that this new grant award will allow us to continue to provide these vital services for our nation’s heroes; our military veterans,” said Charlie Blythe, Goodwill Grants Director.
