Congress acted swiftly to ensure veterans and dependents could continue drawing VA education benefits despite the changes driven by the pandemic. Legislation was passed that allows Post 9/11 GI Bill® students to draw their monthly housing allowance at the full on campus rate even if classes are moved to distance education (online learning). This legislation is good through December 2020 and talks have already begun in the event an extension is needed. We have trained our facilities around the state on how to properly certify enrollments to take advantage of this new law.
