RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia is getting a $3.4 million federal grant to help veterans better gain employment.
The U.S. Department of Labor says the Virginia is experiencing a record number of military personnel transitioning from active military duty into the civilian workforce.
Officials say that while there are numerous programs and services designed to assist veterans and their families, the funding will enhance coordination and alignment of those services.
The community college system and the Virginia Employment Commission will use the funds to identify promising practices and to explore, develop and test strategies to improve the employment outcomes of veterans.
