Veterans who lost their jobs because of the coronavirus pandemic may be eligible for up to a year of tuition and fees plus a housing allowance under the new Veteran Rapid Retraining Assistance Program (VRRAP).
VRRAP covers educational and training programs that lead to high-demand jobs in areas such as computer and mathematical occupations, business and financial operations, engineering, construction, the arts, and more. It can be used for associate degrees, non-college degrees, and certificate programs, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Visit the VA’s website to find available programs and apply online. Payments will be available until Dec. 11, 2022, or until the program reaches the $386 million funding limit or the 17,250 participant limit.
VRRAP is part of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan that President Joe Biden signed into law March 11, 2021.
