    (OMB Control Number: 1225-0086)

    The Jobs for Veterans’ State Grants (JVSG) are mandatory, formula-based staffing grants to States (including DC, PR, VI and Guam). The JVSG is funded annually in accordance with a funding formula defined in the statute (38 U.S.C. 4102A (c) (2) (B) and regulation and operates on a fiscal year (not program year) basis, however, performance metrics are collected and reported quarterly on a Program Year basis (as with the ETA-9002 Series). Currently, VETS JVSG operates on a multi-year grant approval cycle modified and funded annually.

    In accordance with 38 U.S.C. § 4102A(b)(5) and § 4102A(c), the Assistant Secretary for Veterans' Employment and Training (ASVET) makes grant funds available for use in each State to support Disabled Veterans' Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists and Local Veterans' Employment Representatives (LVER) staff. As a condition to receive funding, 38 U.S.C. § 4102A(c)(2) requires States to submit an application for a grant that contains a State Plan narrative, which includes:

g. 3. Job-driven training and subsequent placement service program for eligible veterans and eligible persons;

Current Narrative:

DVOPs will work with homeless shelters, civic and community agencies, WIOA partners in the

AJC network, vocational rehabilitation agencies, the AIDT program, and other training

providers to locate Veterans in need of individualized employment services. Veterans having

SBEs will be referred to DVOPs for individualized services. DVOPs could also be assigned to

orientation sessions hosted by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, Vocational

Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) to assist potential VR&E clients to make good choices

in their Chapter 31 occupational and career training. DVOP’s will also refer qualified Veterans and

covered persons to Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) representatives for job driven training.
