The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is establishing a Veterans Employment Pay for Success (VEPFS) program to award grants to eligible entities to fund projects that are successful in accomplishing employment rehabilitation for Veterans with service-connected disabilities. VA will award grants on the basis of an eligible entitys proposed use of a Pay for Success (PFS) strategy to achieve goals. The VA has published an interim final rule establishing regulations for awarding a VEPFS grant, including the general process for awarding the grant, criteria and parameters for evaluating grant applications, priorities related to the award of a grant, and general requirements and guidance for administering a VEPFS grant program. Comments on the rule must be received on or before October 11, 2016.
