The federal government has awarded grants totaling more than $47 million to help homeless veterans find jobs.

Recipients in Tennessee were awarded more than $906,000; Kentucky awards totaled almost $775,000 and West Virginia will receive $165,000.

The grants are awarded to state and local workforce-investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, tribal governments and faith-based and community organizations.

Through the grants, homeless veterans may receive occupational-skills training, apprenticeship opportunities and on-the-job training, as well as job-search and placement assistance.
