Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E)

The VR&E Program, formerly known as vocational rehabilitation, assists veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find and keep suitable jobs. For veterans with service-connected disabilities so severe that they cannot immediately consider work, this program offers services to improve their ability to live as independently as possible. 

The VR&E Program includes the following services: 

  • Comprehensive rehabilitation evaluation to determine abilities, skills and interests for employment. 
  • Vocational counseling and rehabilitation planning for employment services. 
  • Employment services such as job-training, job-seeking skills, resume development and other work readiness assistance. 
  • Assistance finding and keeping a job, including the use of special employer incentives and job accommodations. 
  • Post-secondary training at a college, vocational, technical or business school, to include tuition, fees, books, supplies, and assistance with living expenses. 
  • Supportive rehabilitation services including case management, counseling and medical referrals. 
  • Independent living services for veterans unable to work due to the severity of their disabilities.
