Request for Information on Black Veterans and Good Jobs

The Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) seeks to continue building and using evidence to identify and prioritize opportunities to improve overall support of veterans’ employment outcomes and experiences in accordance with Executive Order 13985, Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. To this end, VETS endeavors to better understand variations in employment outcomes and experiences across different subgroups of veterans and build a strong knowledge base regarding underserved communities of veterans to inform and improve veteran policies and programs and improve veterans’ access to good jobs.

I am pleased to announce that VETS has released the Black Veterans and Good Jobs Request for Information (RFI) for public feedback. The Federal Register serves as the official published journal of the United States Government, offering agencies such as VETS an opportunity to communicate important information to the public and engage with stakeholders for valuable insights. With this end in mind, we welcome your insights on how VETS’ programs can improve employment and wage outcomes for underserved populations, including Black veterans. Details on the RFI and how to submit responses can be found here, Federal Register :: Request for Information on Black Veterans and Good Jobs. Comments must be received by August 20, 2024.
