VA CFBNP Welcome MessageThe Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (CFBNP) is an office located in the Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs (OPIA). The CFBNP was initially established on June 1, 2004 by Executive Order 13342 and most recently re-established on February 14, 2021 by Executive Order 14015.
The VA Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships participates in numerous outreach events nationwide to partner with organizations that serve our nation’s Veterans. During partnership events, we bring a broad spectrum of VA resources and information through breakout sessions that include Veteran E-Benefits, survivors assistance, Veteran homelessness, opioid epidemic, and suicide prevention training by a trained VA Suicide Prevention Coordinator (SPC). We need your organizations assistance to reach the 24.4 million Veterans across the country by partnering with us to host an event, through volunteering, coordinating clergy specific suicide prevention training, or learning how to establish a Veterans welcome center/ministry.
