Military Program

    In partnership with the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee and other Olympic and Paralympic entities within the United States, the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs (VA) supports eligible service and non-service connected military veterans in their efforts to represent the USA at the Paralympic Games, Olympic Games and other international sport competitions. The VA's Office of National Veterans Sports Programs & Special Events provides a monthly assistance allowance for disabled veterans training in Paralympic sports as well as certain disabled veterans selected for or competing with the National Olympic Team.

    Through the program, the VA will pay a monthly allowance to a veteran with either a service-connected or non-service connected disability if the veteran meets the minimum military standards or higher (e.g., Emerging Athlete or National Team) in his or her respective Paralympic sport at a recognized competition.
