Vocational rehabilitation is intended to help the service-disabled veteran become independent in daily living and, to the extent possible, select, prepare for, and secure employment that is compatible with his or her interests, abilities, physical capabilities, and goals. Under Chapter 31, the Department of Veterans Affairs pays the cost of required tuition, fees, books, equipment, and supplies. The veteran also receives a monthly subsistence allowance.
Interested students should contact the county Veterans Affairs Office or the regional Veterans Affairs Office at 1-800-827-1000.
