Veterans who have been incarcerated – whether city, county, state or federal facility – and have been released within the last 12 months, may be eligible for services under the Incarcerated Veterans Transition Program (IVTP).

The program, managed by the Idaho Department of Labor, can provide services such as classroom training, on-the-job-training, occupational skills training, apprenticeship training and retraining. Additional support may include funding for work clothing and boots, transportation, childcare, vehicle repairs and rent.

In addition to the IVTP, Idaho Labor offers all veterans vocational guidance, job information, training and employment programs, targeted veterans information, job search workshops, resume guidance, mock interviews and re-employment rights.

Search the vet rep directory to contact a veterans representative in your area about IVTP or visit Labor’s website to find more information about other veteran services.
