Announcement of Stand Down Grants
Department of Labor
Veterans Employment and Training Service

The U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) supports local Stand Down events that assist veterans experiencing homelessness by providing a wide range of employment, social, and health services.

Stand Down is a military term referring to an opportunity to achieve a brief respite from combat. Troops assemble in a base camp to receive new clothing, hot food, support services, and a relative degree of safety before returning to combat action. A DOL VETS-funded Stand Down event serves a similar purpose; however, it is intended for veterans experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. The critical services provided at these events are often the catalyst that enables those individuals to reenter the workforce.

VETS awards these noncompetitive grants on a first-come, first-served basis to support one-day or multi-day events at up to $7,000 or $10,000, respectively. They are collaborative events coordinated between VA, DOL, other federal, state, and local government agencies and community-based organizations providing services and supplies to veterans experiencing and at risk of homelessness. In the event of a federal disaster declaration, VETS will accept applications up to $50,000 to conduct Stand Down events in the impacted areas.

Posted Date:  January 10, 2023

Closing Date for Applications:  September 30, 2025

Award Ceiling:  $10,000

Disabled Veterans National Foundation's Capacity Building Grant Program

The Disable Veterans National Foundation's Capacity Building Grants Program provide support to our nation's veterans.  There's no one-size-fits-all protocol for how a veteran overcomes the mental impacts of war, and outside of the initial recovery from physical wounds, it's often up to the veteran to navigate his or her own way back to a normal life.  These grants are awarded to organizations around the country who are addressing the mental and physical recovery of veterans.  Service dogs, equine therapy, yoga, art therapy, and recreational therapy are just a few of the innovative programs that DVNF supports.  DVNF has two open sessions a year in which they process grants.  Organizations may submit their application during these open grant sessions.
