WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) April 26, 2018
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) (http://www.dvnf.org) has announced that it will award $457,182 to 23 organizations as part of its spring session of Capacity Building grants.
Capacity Building Grants are DVNF’s way of touching the lives of veterans through organizational partners throughout the country. These partners address critical needs of veterans in their respective communities including mental and physical health, housing and homelessness.
Whether through addressing the needs of homeless veterans with housing and shelter or providing programs and services to treat PTSD, or anything in between, these 23 organizations were selected because of the impact of the work they do for veterans.
“Each one of these organizations helps to tackle challenges faced by our veterans, and none of them do it the same way,” said DVNF CEO Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj. Ret.). “We would like to congratulate and thank each one of these organizations for their commitment to serving the men and women who served in defense of our country.”
This is the first session of funding DVNF will give this year, the organization expects to award $750,000 in 2018 for this Capacity Building Grant program.

- Offering direct financial support to veteran organizations that address the unique needs of veterans, and whose missions align with that of DVNF.
- Providing supplemental assistance to homeless and low-income veterans through the Health & Comfort program and various empowerment resources.
- Serving as a thought leader on critical policy issues within the veteran community, and educating the public accordingly.
