LEGISLATIVE ISSUES THAT MATTER TO PARALYZED VETERANS
Paralyzed Veterans of America's Legislative Priorities for the First Session of the 117th Congress are available here.
PVA works with policymakers to implement legislation to improve benefits and health care services for veterans and their families.
Our Legislation Program plans, coordinates, implements, and advocates for much-needed policy changes with the United States Congress and federal departments and agencies. Through our relationships with federal, state, and local policymakers, PVA works to ensure that veterans, their dependents, and survivors, receive the best benefits and highest quality health care available. These benefits include compensation, pensions, insurance, housing, and employment. For example, PVA:
- Ensures that veterans have access to quality, timely health care at VA medical facilities.
- Promotes and supports VA research on spinal cord injury, dysfunction, and rehabilitation.
- Develops programs, including non-institutional long-term care, for aging veterans.
- Works for realistic, cost-effective VA funding through The Independent Budget. This is an annual comprehensive budget and policy guide that provides budget and policy recommendations for the Department of Veterans Affairs. It is co-authored by DAV, PVA, and VFW.
