VA’s Office of National Veterans Sports Programs and Special Events provides Veterans with opportunities for health and healing through adaptive sports programs. The goal of these specialized rehabilitation events is to optimize Veterans’ independence, community engagement, well-being and quality of life. VA awarded more than 120 grants across the country, totaling $14.8 million. It’s estimated the organizations can reach about 11,000 Veterans and service members from every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
