1. Eligible Applicants:
Applications for funds will be accepted from State and Local Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs), local public agencies, for-profit/commercial entities, and non-profit organizations, including community-based organizations. Applicants must have a familiarity with the area and population to be served and the ability to administer an effective and timely program. Eligible applicants will generally fall into one of the following categories:
A. State and local WIBs, established under Sections 111 and 117 of the Workforce Investment Act.
B. Public agencies, meaning any public agency of a State or of a general purpose political subdivision of a State that has the power to levy taxes and spend funds, as well as general corporate and police powers. (This typically refers to cities and counties.) A State agency may propose in its application to serve one or more of the jurisdictions located in its State. This does not preclude a city or county agency from submitting an application to serve its own jurisdiction.
C. For-profit/commercial entities.
D. Non-profit organizations (community-based organizations). If claiming 501(c) (3) status, a current and valid Internal Revenue Service statement indicating 501(c)(3) status approval must be submitted within the application or the application will be determined to be non-responsive and it will not be evaluated.
Note that entities organized under Section 501(c) (4) of the Internal Revenue Code are not eligible to receive funds under this announcement.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (Applicants for Grant Funds Should Read This Notice in Its Entirety)The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL or Department), Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) announces a grant competition under 38 U.S.C. Section 2021, which provides that “the Secretary of Labor shall conduct, directly or through grant or contract, such programs as the Secretary determines appropriate to provide job training, counseling, and placement services (including job readiness and literacy and skills training) to expedite the reintegration of homeless Veterans into the labor force.” Both Urban and Non-Urban areas serving homeless Veterans will be considered for funding under this HVRP solicitation. Urban areas are those that serve a high concentration of homeless Veterans in the metropolitan areas of the 75 U.S. cities largest in population and the metropolitan area of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and are listed in Appendix G. All Urban HVRP grant applicants must provide written documentation and maps, if available, which demonstrate that the proposed area to be served has a population equal to or more than 569,463 (the smallest population on the list of 75 U.S. cities largest in population as counted in the 2000 Census). Non-Urban areas are those areas that serve homeless Veterans that are not listed on Appendix G. All Non-Urban HVRP grant applicants must provide written documentation and maps, if available, which demonstrate that the proposed area to be served has a population less than 569,463 (the smallest population on the list of 75 U.S. cities largest in population as counted in the 2000 Census). Applicants must indicate whether they are applying for an Urban or Non-Urban grant award on their grant application.HVRP grants are intended to address two objectives: (1) to provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless Veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force, and (2) to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless Veterans. Successful applicants will design programs that assist eligible Veterans by providing job placement services, job training, counseling, supportive services, and other assistance to expedite the reintegration of homeless Veterans into the labor force. Successful programs will also be designed to be flexible in addressing the universal as well as the local or regional problems that have had a negative impact on homeless Veterans reentering the workforce. Under this solicitation covering PY 2010, VETS anticipates that up to $5 million will be available for urban grants and up to $5 million will be available for non-urban grants, with a maximum award of $300,000 for grants that serve Urban areas and $200,000 for grants that serve Non-Urban areas. VETS expects to award grants in both the Urban and Non-Urban categories. The number of grants to be awarded in each category will be announced after selections are made as the grants are awarded based on the merit of the applications and the type of applicants. Awards are expected to range from $75,000 to a maximum of $200,000 for grants that serve Non-Urban areas and from $75,000 to a maximum of $300,000 for grants that serve Urban areas. This notice contains all of the necessary information and forms to apply for grant funding. The active period of performance for these PY 2010 grants will be July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. In addition, grantees will be required to provide follow-up services during a nine (9) month period from July 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012 (the “follow-up” period of performance), during which the grantee is expected to report on their follow-up services at 90-, 180-, and 270-days after a HVRP participant enters employment. Follow-up services are to be performed and reported by the grantee for each eligible HVRP participant that entered into employment during the active performance period as indicated by Common Measures Reporting requirements. Two (2) optional years of additional funding may be available, subject to the availability of funding, to the agency’s decision to exercise the option year(s) of funding, and to satisfactory grantee and sub-awardee(s) performance. There may be future addendums to this solicitation published on www.grants.gov and the VETS website. All applicants are responsible for checking back to www.grants.gov and the VETS website regularly to ensure they have all of the latest information regarding any updates to this solicitation.
