We are pleased to relay that we have received our 300th successfully submitted application! Thank you to all of our registered employers for your participation in the initial phase of the 2018 HIRE Vets Medallion Program (HVMP) Demonstration. The next phase of the Program Demonstration will be the final review of the 300 applications.

We can no longer accept new registrations or applications for the Program Demonstration. Employers who have started, but not completed, an application may still continue through this process and save the application in the system for review next year. Anyone may download a copy of the application for review and preparation for next year. We encourage you to stay tuned to HIREVets.gov for updates as we complete the 2018 Program Demonstration cycle and begin to prepare for the 2019 Award cycle.
