Dr. Susan Kelly, Director Transition to Veterans Program Office, recently testified before the U.S. House Committee on Veterans' Affairs regarding the Transition Assistance Program (TAP). The new TAP will help more than 1 million servicemembers transition from active duty in the next four years. The foundation of the redesigned TAP is a set of career-readiness standards that are verified for all transitioning servicemembers no later than 90 days prior to their separation from the military. If civilian career readiness standards are not met, servicemembers receive further training or are referred to inter-agency partners who ensure they receive post-separation assistance. A list of those testifying at the hearing is available on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs website at veterans.house.gov/hearing/a-review-of-the-transition-assistance-program-tap-1.
