The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is expanding its focus on partnerships to create a more integrated network of services that can support Veterans' needs throughout their life. Organizations interested in partnering should contact the VA Office of Community Engagement.

The Office of Rural Health focuses on collaborations with federal, state and local entities that increase rural Veterans' access to care and support their health and well-being. ORH partnerships work to optimize the use of available and emerging technologies, leverage available resources, establish new access points to care, and employ strategies to increase health care options for all rural Veterans.

  • Providers shortages
