Unemployed? Thinking VRAP? We Can Help!

Apply for VRAP Benefits

If you are an unemployed veteran looking to increase or adapt your skills and training so you and re-enter the workforce, the Veteran’s Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) can help you. Working to decrease the number of unemployed veterans, the VRAP program enters its second year fiscal year October 1.

According to the Veterans Administration, qualifying Veterans can receive up to 12 months of education assistance equal to the current full-time Montgomery GI Bill – Active Duty rate, which increases to $1546 on October 1, 2012.

If you are unsure if you qualify or if you need help completing your application, be sure to contact us.

There are several factors that qualify you to receive funds:

  1. The VRAP program covers 1 year (12 months) of re-training.
  2. Your training must be related to an job or career that is in high demand.
  3. You must be unemployed as of the date of your application.
  4. Your discharge from service must not have been dishonorable.
  5. You cannot be eligible for any other VA educational benefit program (for example,  the Post-9/11 GI Bill, Montgomery GI Bill, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Assistance).
  6. You are currently not receiving VA compensation for unemployability.
  7. You are not enrolled in another state or federal job training program.
  8. You must be between the ages of 35-60.

If you want to apply but are unsure if you qualify, contact us and let us help you. If the VRAP program doesn’t work for you, we may be able to direct you to other options.
