ACTION: Announcement of funds available under the Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program to support local Stand Down events in Fiscal Year (FY) 2014, FY 2015 and FY 2016 dependent on funding availability. AGENCY: Funding Opportunity No: 17.805 The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) supports local Stand Down events that help homeless veterans attain meaningful civilian employment. Authority to support such events is in 38 U.S.C. section 2021, which provides that the ‘‘Secretary of Labor shall conduct, directly or through grant or contract, such programs as the Secretary determines appropriate to provide job training, counseling, and placement services (including job readiness and literacy and skills training) to expedite the reintegration of homeless veterans into the labor force.’’ A Stand Down is a local community event where homeless veterans are provided a wide variety of services and incentives. Stand Down funding is provided in the form of non-competitive grants that are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until available funding is exhausted. VETS anticipates that approximately $600,000 will be available to award approximately 70 grants in each of the three Federal fiscal years covered by this solicitation. The Federal fiscal year begins on October 1 and ends on September 30 of the next calendar year. Availability of Stand Down grant funding each fiscal year will be dependent upon Federal appropriation. Awards will be made for a maximum of $10,000 per multi-day event, which is up to three days, or $7,000 per one-day event. VETS is now accepting applications for grant awards to fund Stand Down events in FY 2014. All applications for Stand Down grant funding must be submitted to the appropriate State Director for Veterans’ Employment and Training (DVET) no less than 90 days prior to the event. Address and contact ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:45 Jan 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 information for each state DVET can be found at: http://www.dol.gov/vets/ aboutvets/contacts/map.htm. Stand Down grant funding is awarded for a specific event on a specific date. Organizations planning Stand Down events must submit a new application each year to request funding and should not assume that the application will be approved. Stand Down grant awards are contingent upon a Federal appropriation or a continuing resolution each Federal fiscal year. Therefore, applications submitted after July 1 for events to be held after September 30 may be held for consideration contingent upon Federal funding availability during the upcoming fiscal year. Grant applicants cannot obligate grant funding toward Stand Down expenses prior to receiving a Notice of Award from the Grant Officer; any such expenses will be disallowed. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Funding Opportunity Description ‘‘Stand Down’’ is a military term referring to an opportunity to achieve a brief respite from combat. Troops assemble in a base camp to receive new clothing, hot food, and a relative degree of safety before returning to the front. Today more than 160 organizations across the country partner with local businesses, government agencies, tribal governments, community, and faithbased service providers to hold Stand Down events in local communities for homeless veterans and their families. Each year, the Assistant Secretary for Veterans’ Employment and Training awards Stand Down grants to assist with the reintegration of homeless veterans into the labor force through programs that enhance employment and training opportunities and promote selfsufficiency. Typically, services available at these events include temporary shelter, showers, haircuts, meals, clothing, hygiene care kits, medical examinations, immunizations, legal advice, state identification cards, veteran benefit information, training program information, employment services, and referral to other supportive services. Stand Down funding is provided in the form of non-competitive grants that are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until available funding is exhausted. For the purpose of a Stand Down grant award, applicants must describe a plan that clearly demonstrates how grant funding will be used for homeless veterans only. While both veterans and non-veterans may participate in Stand Down events, grant PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4505 funding can only be used to purchase items, to include food and meals, for homeless veteran participants. The following minimum services must be available for homeless veteran participants: D Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)—benefits, medical and mental health services; D Department of Labor—State Workforce Agency employment and training services to include Disabled Veterans’ Outreach Program (DVOP) specialist or other American Job Center staff, where available; and D Referral services to secure immediate emergency housing. II. Allowable Costs Stand Down grant funds must be used to enhance employment and training opportunities or to promote the selfsufficiency of homeless veterans through paid work. Homeless veterans do not always have access to basic hygiene supplies necessary to maintain their health and confidence. Lack of shelter limits their ability to prepare for and present themselves at job interviews or be contacted for follow-up. Basic services such as showers, haircuts, attention to health concerns and other collaborative services provided at a Stand Down can give the homeless veteran a greater sense of self, improving their chances of securing and maintaining employment. Therefore, grant funds may be used to support Stand Down activities such as: D The purchase of food, bottled water, clothing, sleeping bags, one-person tents, backpacks filled with nonperishable foods, hygiene care kits, and non-prescription reading glasses. D Vouchers may be purchased for minor time-limited legal services, consumer credit counseling services, food, and gasoline gift cards for homeless veteran participants. The purchase of gift cards for food and/or gas must be restricted to cards that can only be used to purchase food or gas. Federal awards may not be used for the purchase of alcohol or tobacco products; see 2 CFR 200.423. All grantees purchasing gift cards with grant funds will be required to state the measures they will use to comply with this regulation. D The purchase of job search media such as employment guides or literature in hard copy or on portable storage media, etc. D Special one-time costs for the duration of the Stand Down event such as rental of facilities and/or tents, electricity, equipment, portable toilets and communications or internet access.
