Federal Grant Will Help Homeless Veterans in Cincinnati Transition into the Workforce

WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 27, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — New federal resources will provide critical support services for homeless veterans in Cincinnati. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that the Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries Rehabilitation Center, Inc. in Hamilton County has been awarded a new federal grant from U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP). The $600,000 grant will be used to provide job training and support for homeless veterans.

“The men and women of the Armed Forces have been made a promise that if they defend our country, a grateful nation will provide them with services and benefits they have earned,” Brown, a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, said. “These federal funds are a down payment in the promise to support those who have already given so much to our nation.”

Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries Rehabilitation Center will utilize the funds for a variety of support services, including education and job training, counseling, job placement, and follow up assistance for homeless veterans in Cincinnati.
