Location: New York, NY

Issue Area: Quality of Life

Veteran Advocacy Project (VAP) provides free civil legal services to low-income New York City veterans, focusing on those living with post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, and substance abuse issues. The VAP addresses veterans’ legal challenges that, unresolved, might spiral into more significant individual crises. The BWF investment will promote continued public-private engagement between VAP and government resources to ensure that veterans are connected to the appropriate social services.
