State of Ohio forfeits $525K for disabled veterans

July 12th, 2010    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Opinion

A state program intended to help disabled veterans re-enter the work force saw its funding slashed by more than $500,000 because state officials fell short of a federal requirement to hire and retain vocational counselors.

By the way, this occurred after several months of warnings from the U.S Department of Labor that state officials were jeopardizing the grant by understaffing the program.
