The Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) to Hire Heroes Act of 2011, provides seamless transition for Servicemembers, expands education and training opportunities for Veterans, and provides tax credits for employers who hire Veterans with service-connected disabilities.
The Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) is in place to give unemployed Veterans additional GI Bill benefits for training towards a high demand occupation.
We are accepting VRAP applications now. Please visit eBenefits to apply. Remember, to complete the application, you will need to know your direct deposit information (bank routing number and account number), the name and location of your school, the program you wish to pursue, and the applicable high demand occupation.
Applications will be accepted until September 2013. This program is only two years long. Apply today!
