A veterans organization in Kentucky has been awarded a grant of $210,960 to assist veterans across multiple counties.
The U.S. Department of Labor awarded a competitive grant of $210,960 to the Mountain Comprehensive Care Center in eastern Kentucky, allowing the agency to expand job training and employment services to low-income and homeless veterans in the region, said US Senator Mitch McConnell according to ABC 36 News.
Mountain Comprehensive Care serves Bath, Boyd, Carter, Greenup, Lawrence, Mason, Montgomery, Morgan, Rowan, Floyd, Johnson, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Pike, Perry, and Wolfe counties through its different groups and programs.
“Mountain Comprehensive Care Center is pleased to continue to serve homeless veterans with reintegration services in 49 counties of eastern and central Kentucky,” said Jacqueline S. Long, director of Housing and Grants for Mountain Comprehensive Care Center.
“Helping our most vulnerable citizens is at the core of our mission, and we are very proud to work with the men and women who have valiantly served our country.”
