The VA recently announced a new program for Veterans who have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Veteran Rapid Retraining Assistance Program (VRRAP) offers re-training for high-demand fields such as massage therapy to eligible Veterans. Benefits include up to 12 months of tuition and fees as well as a monthly housing allowance.
Who is eligible:
