Veterans who lost jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic are being offered education and training for a variety of high-demand jobs through the Veteran Rapid Retraining Assistance Program (VRRAP). The VRRAP is a program of the Veterans Administration.
Qualifying Veterans can receive up to 12 months of tuition and fees along with a monthly housing allowance.
To be eligible for VRRAP, Veterans 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.
The program will stop accepting new VRRAP enrollments on December 11, 2022 — or when it reaches either the funding or participant limit, whichever comes first.
