LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A Louisville organization that helps homeless people has been awarded a $300,000 grant to help veterans.

The large grant is intended to provide homeless female veterans and veterans with families job training to help them succeed in civilian careers.

Volunteers of America in Louisville will receive the funding from the Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment and Training Service. The agency announced Monday it is awarding 22 grants totaling more than $5 million to help about 1,900 veterans.

The Labor Department said services provided will include job placement, on-the-job and classroom training, career counseling, life skills and money management mentoring and help in finding housing.
