VOW Act Website now Available
The Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) has initiated the VOW to Hire Heroes Act website.
FRA supported this legislation, sponsored by House Veterans Affairs
Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (Fla.), that was
enacted into law last year (Public Law 112-56). The website provides
comprehensive information on all aspects of the VOW Act to include
details about the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP), tax
credits for employers, vocational rehabilitation services, the
transition assistance program (TAP), and Department of Labor resources
for veterans. Qualified veterans will be able to apply for the VRAP
program, which offers a full year of retraining assistance directly from
the website beginning on May 15, 2012.
