NEW VA PROGRAM: Train for a New Job!

Veteran Rapid Retraining Assistance Program

Train for a New Job with VRRAP

If you're a Veteran who lost your job due to the COVID-19 pandemic, VA may have a solution for you. The Veteran Rapid Retraining Assistance Program (VRRAP) offers education and training for a variety of high-demand jobs so you can get back to work.

VRRAP covers education and training programs approved under the GI Bill and Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) that lead to high-demand jobs. These include associate degrees, non-college degrees, and certificate programs. The Department of Labor determines what’s considered a high-demand job for VRRAP.

Qualifying Veterans can receive up to 12 months of tuition and fees along with a monthly housing allowance.

To be eligible for VRRAP, you must be between 22 and 66 years of age, unemployed due to COVID-19, able to work, and not eligible for education or unemployment benefits.

If you do qualify, apply soon! The VA will stop accepting new enrollments on December 11, 2022—or when they reach either the funding or participant limit, whichever comes first.
