INDIANAPOLIS - Three Indiana organizations are receiving more than $650,000 in grants to provide homeless veterans with job training.
The grants are being awarded through the U.S. Department of Labor's Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program. Nationwide, more than $36 million is being handed out to provide more than 12,000 veterans with training to help them succeed in civilian careers.
In Indiana, more than $260,000 is going to the Crossroads Rehabilitation Center in Indianapolis. ECHO Housing Corporation, which provides homeless shelters in southwestern Indiana, will receive more than $130,000. HealthNet Inc., which operates health care clinics in Indianapolis, will receive about $250,000.
The grants announced last week will also provide job placement, career counseling, life skills and money management training, along with help in finding housing.
