Wisconsin Veteran Retraining Grants

Printer Friendly Page    Jul 19, 2013   

About: A Veteran who is unemployed or underemployed may be eligible for up to $3,000.00 per year, for a maximum of two years, if they have a financial need while being retrained for new employment. The amount of the grant is determined by the applicant's financial need as calculated by the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA).
 
Eligibility: The Veteran must have been involuntarily laid off or discharged (not due to willful misconduct) within a period beginning one year before the date that the WDVA receives the application. The Veteran must have been employed for at least six consecutive months with the same employer or in the same or similar occupations. At least one day of that employment must have been within the period beginning one year before the date that the WDVA receives the application. An underemployed Veteran must have current annual income from employment that does not exceed federal poverty guidelines. The Veteran must be currently enrolled in a technical education program or engaged in a structured on-the-job training program that will be completed within two years of the date that the application is received by the WDVA. In addition to all Wisconsin technical colleges, various private occupational and trade schools may qualify for the retraining grant program if they do not offer four-year degrees or four-year programs. The program must reasonably be expected to lead to employment.
