The Department of Veteran Affairs has asked us to notify veterans about the new Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP). VRAP is a provision under the Veteran Opportunity to Work (VOW) to Hire Heroes Act of 2011. It allows qualified Veterans to receive up to 12 months of education assistance equal to the full-time Montgomery GI Bill at the Active Duty rate, which is currently $1,473 per month. The money is paid to the Veteran, who in turn pays the school for tuition, fees and books.
