Veterans employment and training: $233,000
State workforce agencies receive funds from the Jobs for Veterans grant program to increase job opportunities for veterans. As of June, veterans who served in the military since September 2011 had an unemployment rate of 9.5 percent, which was 17 percent higher than the rate among nonveterans, according to a government report.
The cut would mean that 764 fewer veterans would receive these services, a report said.
