What is the Total Action for Progress Veterans' Program?
TAP provides an array of career services to displaced veterans through face-to-face case management. These services include job placement, job training and development, career counseling, and resume preparation. Additional services, such as referrals to housing, referrals to medical centers, and transportation are also available to help veterans become self-sufficient.
In the absence of employment, eligible veterans can gain employment skills and receive a stipend while working at a local business. When ready, our staff assists our clients with finding employment.
