Webinar – Making Use of the Federal Bonding Program with Veterans in HVRP
Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. ET
The National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC) hosted the webinar “Making Use of the Federal Bonding Program with Veterans in HVRP” on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
The Federal Bonding Program (FBP) is a national resource through the U.S. Department of Labor that provides employers a job-hire incentive that guarantees the job honesty of at-risk job seekers. A recent survey of a small sample of HVRPs across the country found that 70 percent of the programs know about the FBP, but only one has helped a homeless veteran make use of a bond to secure employment. What is your experience? In this webinar we provided an overview of the FBP and talked about the experience in Florida where last year 350 Bonds were approved. Lastly, we explored ways to effectively use the FBP with HVRP participants.
The webinar featured Tom Villanova, Union Insurance Group and Nikki Brown, FL Bond Coordinator, Department of Economic Opportunity, as guest speakers and was facilitated by John Rio, MA, CRC, from the National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC).
