VRAP GI Bill Program Was Highly Successful

veterans retraining and education

The Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) was designed to assist unemployed Veterans between the ages of 35 and 60 upgrade their skills for today's high-demand jobs. The VA worked with the Department of Labor (DOL) to offer training in a high-demand occupation as defined by DOL.

The VRAP Program ran from 2011 - 2014 and trained over 76,000 Veterans. After the Veterans completed their training, the DOL helped them with job placement.

Even though the program is over, there is information about Veterans Job Opportunities on the VA's VRAP webpage at  www.benefits.va.gov/VOW

There are also many employment resources available at the Department of Labor's Veterans Resource Center at www.dol.gov/vets. Veterans can also visit the nearly 3,000 One-Stop Career Centers across the nation, listed at www.servicelocator.org, for in-person employment assistance.
