Success in Transition for All Veterans Act

This bill directs the Department of Labor to carry out a research program to evaluate whether the transition assistance program addresses the differentiated needs, challenges, and post-military service aspirations of women veterans, veterans with disabilities, Native American veterans, veterans who are residents of a U.S. territory, veterans who are part of the indigenous population of a U.S. territory, and other groups of minority veterans. (The transition assistance program is a Labor program that assists members of the armed forces separating from active duty and their spouses in identifying and obtaining employment and training opportunities.)

The research program shall address:

  • whether and how employment barriers and employment aspirations facing such veterans are substantively different from other veteran populations; and
  • whether the transition program is designed to address such differences and, if not, changes that could be made to do so.
