ETA Issues Update on the Roles and Responsibilities of the Public Workforce System in Tracking, Offering Employment Services, and Reporting Outcomes of Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) Participants.
Sep 6, 2013
The Employment and Training Administration has issued Change 1 to Training and Employment Guidance Letter 08-12.

This TEGL informs the workforce system about the required process for providing outreach to and tracking outcomes of VRAP participants, including how the Department of Labor will make available VRAP participant information to state grantees.

The TEGL also:

  • includes procedures for American Job Center (formerly known as One-Stop Career Center) staff to offer VRAP participants employment assistance upon program completion or termination as required by the VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011;

  • provides specifications for reporting to DOL on outreach activities and the employment outcomes of VRAP participants; and,

  • corrects an inconsistency on the reporting values, offers more details on report due dates, provides instruction for reporting individuals who are both VRAP participants and Extended Unemployment Compensation (EUC) claimants, and provides programmatic updates.
