VRRAP FAQs

No. At the time you apply for VRRAP, you can’t be eligible for any of these other benefits:

  • Post-9/11 GI Bill
  • Montgomery GI Bill
  • Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E)
  • Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance (DEA)
  • Veterans’ Educational Assistance Program (VEAP)

Note: You can get VRRAP benefits if you were at one time eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill but you’ve transferred all of your benefits to family members.

VRRAP covers education and training programs approved under the GI Bill and Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) that lead to high-demand jobs. These include associate degrees, non-college degrees, and certificate programs. The Department of Labor determines what’s considered a high-demand job for VRRAP.

If you’re eligible for VRRAP, you can get:

  • Up to 12 months of tuition and fees
  • A monthly housing allowance based on Post-9/11 GI Bill rates

VRRAP will be available until December 11, 2022. We’ll stop making payments on this date—or when we reach either the $386 million funding limit or the 17,250 participant limit.
