Washington, D.C. — Today, Georgia U.S. Senators Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock announced more than $2.5 million in federal funding to help Georgia veterans experiencing homelessness successfully reenter the workforce.

The grant awards come from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP).

“Helping veterans out of homelessness is a top priority. That’s why we’re delivering these resources to help Georgia veterans who are down on their luck to build skills, get jobs, and rebuild their lives,” said Sen. Ossoff.

“Upholding our promise to our veterans to help them live full, independent lives while strengthening our workforce at the same time is a win-win for our state, and I’ll continue fighting to make sure federal dollars keep flowing to help Georgia’s veterans,”said Sen. Reverend Warnock.

Please find a breakdown of the grant funding for Georgia organizations below:
