AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:57 Dec 23, 2015 Jkt 238001 To amend the Stand Down Federal Register notice {FR Doc. 2014– 00755}. This amendment extends funding for Stand Down events from fiscal years (FY) 2016 through FY 2017, contingent upon funding availability. ACTION: Funding Opportunity No: 17.805 SUMMARY: 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 to reintegrate into their community, such as housing opportunities, healthcare, and employment opportunities, Stand Down funding is provided in the form of noncompetitive 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 Federal FY covered by this solicitation. The Federal FY begins on October 1 and ends on September 30 of the next calendar year. Awards will be made for a maximum of $10,000 per multi-day event or $7,000 per one-day event. VETS is now accepting applications for grant awards to fund Stand Down events in FY 2015. All applications for Stand Down grant funding must be submitted to the appropriate state Director for Veterans’ Employment and Training (DVET). Applications will be accepted up to six (6) months prior to the event. Please allow up to 60 days to process your application. Address and contact 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 FY. Therefore, applications submitted PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 after July 1 for events to be held after September 30 may be held for consideration contingent upon Federal funding availability during the upcoming FY. 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. VETS wants to build on this approach for homeless civilian veterans to reenter the labor force. 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 only be used for homeless veterans. While both veterans and non-veterans may participate in Stand Down events, grant funding can only be used to purchase items including food and meals, for homeless veteran participants. The following minimum services must be available for homeless veteran participants during the Stand Down: D Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)—benefits, medical and mental health services; D Department of Labor (DOL)—State Workforce Agency (SWA) employment and training services to include E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1
