VA Home and Community-Based Services for Disabled Veterans

While our work legislative efforts continue, an immediate opportunity exists with another VA program that provides caregiver support and is accessible to veterans of all eras.

The Veteran-Directed Home & Community Based Service (VD-HCBS) program authorizes a monthly flexible spending budget to buy goods and services based on needs assessment for a severely disabled veteran to live safely at home. That is, veterans participating in this program are able to hire family and friends to provide for their personal care needs – or to provide support to their family caregivers. However, VD-HCBS is currently operational at 50 VA Medical Centers in 28 states, DC, and Puerto Rico. It is DAV’s goal to have VD-HCBS available nationwide at all VA Medical Centers. With your help, we can make this goal a reality.
