Veterans Retraining Assistance Program
VRAP is a new expanded training program for unemployed veterans between the ages of 35 - 60 who are not currently receiving VA education benefits.
The program is limited to 45,000 participants from July 1, 2012, through September 30, 2012, and 54,000 participants from October 1, 2012, through March 31, 2014. Participants may receive up to 12 months of assistance equal to the monthly full-time payment rate under the Montgomery GI Bill–Active Duty program (currently up to $1,564 per month).
