The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will partner with the NAACP to improve the department’s service for Black veterans, the organizations announced Friday.
The new initiative hopes to increase Black enrollment in VA services and assist in hiring “culturally-competent” care providers who specialize in working with minority communities, the VA said in a release.
