HONOLULU (AP) - Two Hawaii community service organizations that aid homeless veterans have been awarded nearly $600,000 in federal grants.
The U.S. Department of Labor said Thursday Network Enterprises is to receive $293,000 and Mental Health Association in Hawaii is to get $300,000.
The grants are part of $28 million awarded nationwide to help provide job training to some 17,000 veterans who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.
The 122 grants are being awarded under the U.S. Department of Labor's Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program.
Sen. Daniel Inouye says in a statement that many don't realize a disproportionate number of Hawaii's homeless are veterans.
