Military Members Transitioning to Civilian Life

(Reno, Nevada) – The Nevada Department of Veterans Services (NDVS) is announcing the launch of the Nevada Transition Assistance Program or NVTAP.

NVTAP will support military members who plan to call Nevada their home after they transition from the military to civilian life. The program is designed to inform and connect Nevada veterans of all eras to earned State and Federal benefits. The program will also provide continuing support and assistance as the needs of veterans and their families change over time.

NVTAP provides information and assistance through informational modules presented in-person and virtual workshops in the following areas:

  • General knowledge of earned Federal and State benefits, programs, and services
  • Employment opportunities, including on-the-job training, apprenticeships, licensure programs
  • Entrepreneurship resources and opportunities
  • Continuing Education and retraining resources
  • Healthcare and wellness resources and programs
  • Housing support and resources
  • Services provider resources ranging from attorneys to social services as well as earned benefits from the State of Nevada

“NVTAP supports veterans from the very start of their civilian life, so they are familiar with the support, programs and services provided by NDVS,” said Kat Miller, NDVS Director. “NDVS assists veterans in navigating through, what can sometimes be a challenging system, to connect them to the benefits they’ve earned through their military service.”

Information on NVTAP may be found on the front page of the NDVS website at veterans.nv.gov.
