The National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC) is thrilled to announce the launch of Helping Homeless Veterans Return to Work a self-paced online training course developed for staff members of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) grantees. Whether you are a brand new grantee trying to ramp up a program, or a long-term grantee trying to keep a successful program moving, the struggle to provide comprehensive training amidst other competing priorities is real. Unfortunately, so are the consequences of inadequate training: a steep learning curve, a trial and error approach and, far too often, poor grant performance. Designed to address this ongoing challenge, Helping Homeless Veterans Return to Work will include several modules on the core components of HVRP service delivery.

Module 1: An Introduction to HVRP is complete and ready to use. The purpose of this module is to provide staff with a foundation for their work in HVRP including understanding the role of HVRP within the larger landscape of veteran homelessness in your community. You can access Module 1 at https://www.nvtac.org/training-ta/#accordion3.

Additional modules expected to be completed and posted in the coming months are listed below:
Module 2: Finding Veterans – Outreach and Engagement
Module 3: Screening, Intake, and Assessment
Module 4: Case Management and IEPs
