Public Private Partnerships

Partnerships Showcase Series

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hosted the first event of its Partnerships Showcase Series on Thursday, June 26, 2014.

This inaugural kick off featured an individual presentation via Google Hangout by Mr. Larry Long, Director of Recreational Therapy, Veterans Health Administration, a subject matter expert who highlighted a successful non-monetary public-private partnership (P3) between the VA and a non-governmental organization (NGO) providing recreational therapy to Veterans through fly fishing. Through this presentation-style set up, Mr. Long provided in-depth elemental information on key components to the partnership, while leaving time for general Q&A at the end. While VA did not offer partnership opportunities during this Google Hangout, the event provided NGO representatives with the opportunity to learn more about specific key elements to some of VAs successful partnerships and the formula for a model that is both scalable and replicable.

If your NGO programmatic staff members have questions about how to establish a non-monetary, P3 with the VA, this video is for them! NGO staff members should come away with a better understanding of how to initiate, explore, problem solve, establish, and maintain a P3 with the VA.
