Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E)

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilitates the Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) Program, also known as Chapter 31. The VR&E Program provides the services and assistance needed to enable Veterans with service-connected disabilities to achieve maximum independence in daily living and to the maximum extent feasible to prepare for, obtain, and maintain suitable employment. Veterans with a disability rating and an employment handicap may be entitled to VR&E services as authorized by Congress under Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 31.
