Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP)
Congress passed, and the President has signed into law, the VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011. Included in this new law is the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP). VRAP offers up to 12 months of training assistance to unemployed Veterans. The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and the Department of Labor (DOL) are working together to roll out this new program on July 1, 2012.
The Veterans Employment Program is a federally funded, federally mandated program established by Congress under United States Code Title 38. The purpose of the program is to help veterans obtain the employment and job search skills needed to obtain employment in Montana.
While the Employment Specialists at Montana's local Job Service offices are equipped to assist all Veterans in securing employment and training, the Disabled Veteran Outreach Program (DVOP) Specialist and Local Veteran Employment Representative (LVER) located at several Job Service locations are trained to address the needs of Veterans (and in some cases, their families) who encounter more severe challenges obtaining employment.
Workforce Services Division is the state agency that administers the Veterans Program. There is a federal representative located in Montana that administers the program on a federal level.
