Additional Eligibility Criteria:

An eligible applicant will have an understanding of the unemployment problems of Veterans, familiarity with the area to be served, linkages with the One-Stop Career Centers, and the capability to administer a program of workforce investment activities for such Veterans effectively.

Public agencies and non-profit organizations, including state and local workforce investment boards and faith- based and neighborhood partnerships, land grant schools and tribal colleges that are determined to have familiarity with the area and population to be served and can administer an effective program, under WIA section 168(a)

Eligible applicants generally fall into one of the following categories: Non-profit organizations (including faith-based and neighborhood partnerships). If claiming 501(c) (3) status, the Internal Revenue Service statement indicating 501(c) (3) status approval must be submitted; Applicants should establish partnerships with State and local Workforce Investment Boards (SWIBs/LWIBs), established under Sections 111 and 117 of the Workforce Investment Act.; or Public agencies, meaning any public agency of a State or of a general purpose political subdivision of a State that has the power to levy taxes and spend funds, as well as general corporate and police powers. (This typically refers to cities and counties.) A State agency may propose in its application to serve one or more of the jurisdictions located in its State. This does not preclude a city or county agency from submitting an application to serve its own jurisdiction. Applicants for VWIP must satisfy a “responsibility review” that demonstrates an ability to administer Federal funds. See 20 CFR 667.170.

Other eligible applicants include joint labor-management training programs, representatives from local governments, conservation corps, community colleges, and small businesses. Entities described in Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code that engage in lobbying activities are not eligible to receive funds under this announcement because Section 18 of the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995, Public Law No. 104-65, 109 Stat. 691, prohibits the award of Federal funds to these entities. In accordance with 29 CFR Part 98, entities that are debarred or suspended shall be excluded from Federal financial assistance and are ineligible to receive a VWIP grant.
