ADVOCACY FOR VETERANS
H.R.3272 – Veteran Education Empowerment Act
This bill was written to direct the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to carry out a grant program to provide Veteran Student Centers at institutions of higher education to assist veterans in the pursuit of higher education. Over one million veterans and active duty service members in the United States attend college every year and many veterans experience challenges transitioning from the battlefield to the classroom. These challenges often lead to veterans dropping out of school limiting potential job opportunities.
H.R.3272 will provide funding for Veteran Student Centers located at colleges and universities across the country to provide aid and resources for veterans pursuing higher education. In order for this legislation to become a law, it will have to be approved by the subcommittee, voted on by the House and Senate, and then signed by the President.
