April 5, 2021 – The Independent Living Track was implemented to help Veterans and service members who are unable to work due to their service connected disabilities.  The Independent Living Track also assists Veterans trying to obtain a job through Vocational Rehabilitation.  Veterans may qualify for independent living services, if eligible.  Eligible Veterans must have a serious employment handicap, require aid to live as independently as possible, and their disabilities must prevent a Veteran from looking for or returning to work.  To apply, you can find this information here.
