WASHINGTON, DC -- Congresswoman Cheri Bustos announced a $200,000 grant for Goodwill Industries of Central Illinois in Peoria on Thursday.

The grant is awarded through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program.

“Our brave military service members and their families have made tremendous sacrifices for us and we owe them our highest gratitude,” Bustos said.

Bustos says the funding will help homeless veterans in the Peoria area rejoin society and the labor force while providing services aimed at addressing the challenges that homeless veterans often confront.
