Important Terms & Definitions

Eligible Veteran (Federal Guidelines)

Served on active duty for more than 180 days and discharged/released with other than a dishonorable discharge; discharged/released from active duty due to a service-connected disability; or a member of a reserve component under an order to active duty during a period of war/campaign/expedition, for which a campaign badge is authorized and was discharged/released from duty with other than a dishonorable discharge.

Implementing Priority of Services

  • The proposed regulations provide that priority of service means the right of eligible covered persons to take precedence over eligible non-covered persons in obtaining services. They further specify that taking precedence may mean:
    • The covered person receives access to the service or resource earlier in time than the non-covered person; or
    • If the service or resource is limited, the covered person receives access to the service or resource instead of or before the non-covered person.
  • The proposed regulations specify how priority of service is to be applied across three different types of qualified job training programs:
    • Universal access programs that do not target specific groups;
    • Discretionary targeting programs that focus on certain groups but are not mandated to serve target group members before other eligible individuals, and;
    • Statutory targeting programs that are mandated by federal law to provide priority or preference to certain groups.
