The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Center for Innovation, together with the Corporation for National and Community Service's Social Innovation Fund, awarded the Veterans Employment Pay for Success (VEPFS) Program grant to the social investment firm, Social Finance, Inc. As awarded, the $3 million employment, labor and training grant will support the employment rehabilitation of approximately 500 Veterans over a five-year period. By using the Pay for Success model, VA will be better able to ensure the measurable successes of Veterans seeking vocational rehabilitation and employment based on their skills and abilities, particularly those living with service-connected post-traumatic stress disorder.
