The Disabled Veterans National Foundation’s Capacity Building Grant program provides grants to like-minded organizations who provide support to veterans and disabled veterans alike. The Capacity Building Grants provide support to our nation’s veterans. There’s no one-size-fits-all protocol for how a veteran overcomes the mental impacts of war, and outside of the initial recovery from physical wounds, it’s often up to the veteran to navigate his or her own way back to a normal life. These grants are awarded to organizations around the country who are addressing the mental and physical recovery of veterans. Service dogs, equine therapy, yoga, art therapy, and recreational therapy are just a few of the innovative programs that DVNF supports. DVNF has two open sessions a year in which they process grants. Organizations may submit their application during these open grant sessions.
