Funding for the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) expires Monday.

The program provides about 1,600 dollars in tuition assistance per year for veteran students. Last month, Senator Chuck Schumer told veterans he was working on a plan to restore and extend funding for VRAP. The expiration of funds impacts students at several two-year colleges in our area.
