Sudbury group Advocates for Human Potential, Inc., was one of two groups to receive a grant that combined reaches nearly $1 million.

Earlier this week, United States Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez announced that Advocates for Human Potential and Washington, D.C, non-profit National Coalition for Homeless Veterans were each awarded $450,000 to fund services provided by Veterans' Employment and Training Service.

According to the announcement, the grants are being distributed through the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP).

“For our returning service members to experience homelessness or difficulty finding a civilian job is unacceptable. As President Obama emphasized in his State of the Union address, we must fulfill our commitment to these brave men and women,” Perez said.

Thanks to these grants, the organizations will be able to help develop and maintain the National Veterans Technical Assistance Center, according to the announcement.

“These federal grants will help local partners provide essential services to those who have served in America’s armed forces that will ease their transition to civilian life,” said Perez.
