The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has launched the Veterans Employment Pay for Success (VEPFS) Program. The grants program is designed to help Veterans with a service-connected disability such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) secure meaningful and sustained employment. Pay for Success programs are different because the payout occurs only after a rigorous evaluation determines that the pre-agreed-upon outcomes have been achieved. The VA is thus paying for what works. Pay for Success program is the first of its kind to be attempted at VA. Entities who wish to apply for a grant should visit Grants.gov and read the Federal Register. For more information, visit the VA VAntage Point Blog.
