Capacity Building Grant (CBG)

Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF)


Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #151157

Grant Description

Grants of up to $25,000 to USA nonprofit organizations and IHEs providing services to veterans. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support efforts to expand organizational capacity. Eligible applicants are organizations providing mental and physical health services directly to veterans.

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation’s Capacity Building Grant program provides grants to like-minded organizations that provide support to veterans and disabled veterans alike.

Organizational Grants have been used by many veteran organizations to fund programs or initiatives in which they need outside funding. The Organizational Grant Program provides direct financial assistance to organizations providing mental and physical health services directly to veterans.

These grants are awarded to organizations around the country that are addressing the mental and physical recovery, housing and homelessness and employment of veterans in unique ways. Service dogs, equine therapy, yoga, art therapy, recreational therapy, housing, and capacity building for employment are just a few of the innovative programs that DVNF supports.
