$4.4 million in state grants will assist California veterans in securing jobs Funds to assure continued success of veteran employment programs SACRAMENTO: Building on the success of its Veterans Employment-Related Assistance Program (VEAP), the California Employment Development Department (EDD) announced today that it will distribute $4.4 million in grants among nine local entities that are already implementing highly effective programs. “Veterans quickly become integral members of any team they are part of,” said EDD Director Patrick W. Henning, Jr. “Their dedication, discipline, and adaptability skills obtained during their military service make them valuable and highly desirable employees.” This year’s grants were only available for ongoing VEAP Programs that meet required project performance goals. The new funds will allow awardees to enhance their service-delivery infrastructure and improve partnerships with labor groups, business associations, and regional employers. Additionally, the money is intended to ensure the programs’ continued sustainability. “Our VEAP program is designed to bring veterans to the front of the hiring line – as a way to show the state’s appreciation for the many sacrifices that veterans have made for all of us,” Henning added. The $4.4 million in grant funding is provided by the Workforce Investment Act’s (WIA), Governor’s Discretionary Funds and the Dislocated Worker Additional Assistance funds. This year’s VEAP grant awardees are:
