CAP Guidelines on Employment Support Services: American Sign Language, Oral or Tactile Interpreting Services; CART Services; Reader Services; Personal Assistance Services; and Training. 

  • CAP funds employment support services for DoD employees who attend job-related training sessions lasting a minimum of 4 hours, but not to exceed two weeks.
  • CAP will only consider funding services if the training is held in a DoD office or facility.  Training held in non-DoD facilities and offices, including those occupied by CAP's federal partners or private entities, are not eligible for consideration because the host, whether a federal agency or recipient of federal funds, has a legal obligation to ensure equal access.
  • Please provide the following information when submitting a CAP request:
    • Course/training title
    • Copy of training/course description
    • Copy of training/course registration
    • Start date and end date
    • Start time and end time for each day
    • Complete address and room location of training/course
    • Onsite point of contact (POC) information, including name, title, phone number and email address
    • Any special instructions, such as: the need for the service provider to hold specialized licensing or certification, the need for the service provider to hold a security clearance, building access, parking arrangements, public transportation, etc. 
  • Please note, the requesting DoD agency must comply with the service provider agency's cancellation policies (usually 48 or 72 hours).  Please email the CAP Assessment Team at least one week (five business days) before the scheduled start date of the training/course if you need to cancel. Failure to comply with these policies may result in the requesting agency being responsible for any late cancellation fees.
