Veterans, Family, and Community Engagement

What is a Veteran-Friendly Community?

The Community Veterans Engagement Board (CVEB) model enables Veterans, Service members, Military Families, Veteran advocates, community service providers, and stakeholders to have a collective voice in identifying their community goals and work to resolve gaps in service at the local level to improve service delivery for Veterans, Military Families, Caregivers, and Survivors. VA leaders are committed to actively engage in community-based efforts that maximize the collective impact of local services, stakeholders, and federal/state/municipal agencies working collectively to improve Veteran outcomes where they live, work, and raise their families.
