About VCP

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, please contact the VCP Leadership Team at

Why VCP?
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.

VCP Expansion: 
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?

VCP trainings are available to assist VA facilities to develop a VCP within their communities.  To learn more about VCP and training opportunities, please contact VCP's Leadership Team at
