Webinar – Accessing VA Benefits

Oct. 21, 2016

The National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC) is hosting the webinar “Accessing VA Benefits” on Thursday, November 3 at 2:00 pm EDT.

Homeless veteran service providers, especially HVRP grantees, recognize the critical connection between a viable income and housing stability. Homeless veterans may be rapidly connected to housing, but they are better able to stay in housing when they are earning a livable wage. While placement in competitive employment may be the ultimate goal, service providers can utilize benefits payments to help homeless veterans find stability while they are seeking and even after obtaining employment. This webinar will help local community agencies better connect their homeless veteran consumers to VA benefits. Experts will share strategies for engaging more substantially with your VSO and community partners and navigating the sometimes complicated connection between disability benefits and employment.

This featured guest speakers for this webinar are Gerardo Avila, Deputy Director, Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, American Legion and Shurhonda Love, Assistant National Legislative Director, Disabled American Veterans.
