Minority Veterans Program

About the Program

Minority Veterans Program at VA Illiana Health Care System is the Department of Veterans Affairs model for interagency and intra-agency cooperation, to ensure all Veterans receive equal service regardless of race, origin, religion, or gender. We are process improvement oriented and both internally and externally customer-centric.

"Keeping the Promise"

The primary goal of this outreach initiative is to increase local awareness of minority Veteran related issues and develop strategies for increasing their participation in existing VA benefits programs.

Minority Veterans Program Coordinators (MVPC) are located at Regional Offices, Health Care Facilities and National Cemeteries and are responsible for:

  • Promoting the use of VA benefits, programs and services by minority Veterans.
  • Supporting and initiating activities that educate and sensitize internal staff to the unique needs of minority Veterans.

Targeting outreach efforts to minority Veterans through community networks.
Advocating on behalf of minority Veterans by identifying gaps in service and make recommendations to improve service delivery within their facilities.

Who We Serve
