BISAC: POL029000

The unemployment rate for all veterans has risen since the beginning of the economic downturn, but the unemployment rate for Native Americans living on tribal land has been higher. In addition, tribal land is frequently located in remote areas characterized by limited economic development, which can make finding a job challenging. A range of federal programs provide employment assistance that can serve veterans of any race or ethnicity; in addition, other federal programs offer similar services to Native Americans (veterans and non-veterans alike).

The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Veteran’s Employment and Training Service administers several grant programs to support eligible veterans through the Jobs for Veterans State Grants Program. This book provides recommendations for improving employment and job training opportunities for Native American Veterans on tribal lands, especially through the utilization of resources for Veterans; and reviews current and prior government-to-government relations between tribal organizations and the Department of Labor Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS).
