CLC Veteran Assistance Declining with Government Cuts

About 80 Central Lakes College student veterans may have to find other ways to pay for classes after two tuition assistance programs are reduced or eliminated because of government funding cutbacks.

The first, a program called the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP), disappears March 31, 2014. It serves veterans who are unemployed and want to get back into the workforce, but have used all other veteran benefits.
