A federal grant announced on Tuesday could help dozens of homeless veterans in the Evansville area find jobs and get off the streets.
It's called the Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program and it's a grant through the U.S. Department of Labor.
It's one of only two of these grants awarded to non-profits in the Hoosier state, and for those with no place to go, it could be the answer they've been looking for.
"There's nothing here really, I mean nothing. Nothing at all. At least that I've been able to find. It's very hard around here," said homeless veteran, Jeremy Holtzclaw. "I can't find a job. I've lost my home. I'm separated from my wife and kids."
We came across Holtzclaw minutes after the announcement of HVRP, a federally funded program through the Echo Housing Corporation to help homeless vets.
For Holtzclaw, it was a meeting that didn't come by chance.
