CVCC Helps to Re-employ Virginians (REV)


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all, but some more than others. Through its Re-Employing Virginians (REV) campaign, the Governor’s office is giving Virginia’s Community Colleges funds to help students cover the costs of tuition and fees in fields that will lead to careers in their community.

In order to be eligible for a training voucher, an applicant must have received unemployment benefits on or after August 1, 2020, or must certify that they are working in a part-time job with an hourly wage under $15 after losing a full-time job due to COVID-19.

You must also be interested in pursuing training or classes in a specified skilled trades CVCC approved Career Technical Education (CTE) program scuh as:

  • Health Sciences 
  • Information Technology
  • Manufacturing Technology
  • Public Safety Programs


If you feel you meet the above eligibility requirements you should next officially apply through the below link to the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) webpage online application form and fill it out and submit it.

See if you qualify for free education vouchers up to $3,000!

The VCCS will then make a determination on your eligibility and if you qualify they will refer your contact information to CVCC and the college will contact you about applying for classes using the REV tuition voucher program. 

A CVCC college Navigator will then help you to enroll in a program that will give you the skills and education you need to succeed in the high-demand CTE career field of your choosing.

To learn more about eligibility, read through our frequently asked questions.

After you determine your REV funding and begin to plan your courses with a CVCC navigator you should also review this additional information:

  • If you choose to do short-term workforce training, you’ll receive up to a $1,500 voucher applied to your student account.
  • If you choose to pursue classes towards a career studies certificate or an associate degree, you’ll receive up to $1,500 for part-time or up to $3,000 for full-time – both applied directly to your student account.
  • Enroll in courses. You need to enroll and claim your voucher by Dec. 14, 2020, even if your classes begin at a later date.
  • This is a one-time funding effort to help Virginians recover from job loss or underemployment due to COVID-19. But remember to take advantage of these dollars soon because funding expires on Dec. 14.
