In the News
In the News chronicles stories about linkages VA is making with tribal governments. These linkages form critical lines of communication that transition from dialogue to intergovernmental understanding on to relationships and ultimately to deliverables which ensure American Indian and Alaska Native Veterans and their families in Indian Country receive the benefits they’ve earned through their service to America. These deliverables may take the form of grant awards, announcements of funding opportunities, sharing of best practices and the list goes on.
