    On October 13, 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Veterans' 
Benefits Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-275). Section 201 reauthorizes the 
Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program through fiscal year (FY) 2011 
and indicates: ``The Secretary of Labor shall conduct, directly or 
through grant or contract, such programs as the Secretary determines 
appropriate to provide job training, counseling, and placement services 
(including job readiness and literacy and skills training) to expedite 
the reintegration of homeless veterans into the labor force.''
    HVRP grants are intended to address two objectives: (1) To provide 
services to assist in reintegrating homeless veterans into meaningful 
employment within the labor force, and (2) to stimulate the development 
of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex 
problems facing homeless veterans.
