An Eastern Band Cherokee Veteran built a family mountain home using the VBA Native American Direct Loan mortgage product. Learn more about how you can take advantage of this benefit.
We help ensure Indian Country's Veterans know what VA offers Veterans and how to access the full range of services and benefits our Veterans have courageously earned through their service. Learn more about OTGR.
The OTGR team works to strengthen and build closer relations between the VA, tribal governments and other key federal, state, private and non-profit partners in an effort to effectively and respectfully serve Veterans across Indian Country. This work is done in the spirit of government to government consultation and collaboration, respectful of the special relationship that exists between the United States and tribal governments. Our efforts focus on three important goals: facilitating VA's Tribal Consultation Policy, facilitating increased access to health care and promoting economic sustainability (highlighting opportunities for Veterans to access fiscal, educational, housing and other special programs and benefits through the VA).
Up-to-date and comprehensive information on this program can be found on the Reimbursement Agreement page.
