National Center for Healthcare Advancement and Partnerships
Veteran Community Partnerships
Veteran Community Partnerships (VCPs) are organized partnerships through which local VA facilities connect with state and local community services and agencies to:
- Develop and foster strong relationships
- Enhance and improve access to care, services, and benefits
- Promote seamless transitions
- Educate community agencies and VA providers
- Support caregivers and families
- Measure results through shared reporting
To find a VCP in your area, view the VCP Roster.
VCP provides an innovative, flexible, relevant and useful approach to establish and nurture community partnerships that facilitate and improve access to care, benefits and services from VA and community partners for Veterans, families and their caregivers.
The Veteran Community Partnership initiative plans to expand to every VA medical center by September 2024. Guidance for VCP’s expansion and strategic plan is provided by subject matter experts from a dozen VHA National Centers and Offices along with ex-officio involvement from national non-VA organizations.
How can my VA Medical Center develop a VCP?
