- More than 90 percent of grantee survey respondents reported that at least some of their participants received employment and training services at the AJC. This requirement was most often met through Jobs for Veterans State Grant (JVSG) services, particularly those provided by JVSG’s Disabled Veterans’ Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists.
- The site visits revealed that grantees that provided a full complement of employment and other services to veterans perceived less need to co-enroll HVRP participants at the AJC than grantees with fewer in-house services.
To make the most of public workforce system resources, veterans participating in HVRP—a U.S. Department of Labor program providing employment services to veterans experiencing homelessness—must enroll in one of three federally funded programs available at American Job Centers (AJCs). Using data from a survey of program year 2020 grantees and supplemented with staff interviews from eight site visit grantees and their AJC partners, this brief describes: (1) the AJC program in which a majority of HVRP participants were co-enrolled; (2) the percentage of participants receiving services at the AJC; and (3) the processes grantees used to co-enroll participants.
