Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, Tribal organizations, and IHEs to promote employment and economic opportunities for veterans experiencing homelessness. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take as long as four weeks to complete.

The intent of the HVRP grant program is to obtain high-quality career outcomes for veterans experiencing homelessness. The Department encourages applicants to propose strategies to achieve economic opportunity, address historical inequities, and provide equitable access and outcomes to marginalized groups.

To meet the fluctuations in the population and changing needs of veterans experiencing homelessness, VETS requires grant recipients to provide an array of client-centered services utilizing a case management approach that directly assists homeless veterans and provides critical linkages to a variety of support services available in their local communities.  The HVRP approach is focused on obtaining high-quality career outcomes for the veteran. Veterans are to receive the job training and employment services required to re-enter and be successful in the labor force. To realize long-term benefits for veterans experiencing homelessness, grant recipients must address the complex employment-related requirements and support services necessary to meet the needs of this population. This can be achieved either through direct services or through a robust referral system establishing tools, resources, and partnerships to identify, recruit, prepare, and support veterans experiencing homelessness for employment success. Through one of these methods, grant recipients will provide job placement, job training, job development, career counseling, and resume preparation services among other services to assist with obtaining high-quality career outcomes.

The HVRP grant prioritizes ensuring fair and equitable treatment for all workers, providing opportunities for marginalized communities and ensuring accessibility for underserved communities. Grant recipients will be better able to deliver more outcomes that are equitable for marginalized veterans by understanding the inequities that exist and by embedding equity into decision-making processes. Applicants are encouraged to address systemic and programmatic barriers that have created employment and economic inequities for historically marginalized populations, particularly Black, Indigenous, Latinx/Hispanic, Pacific Islander, other people of color, women of color, as well as other communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
