VA Public Affairs

News Releases from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
  1. Today the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced that the two-month pilot phase of the new White House VA Hotline that began in June has demonstrated that Veterans calling the hotline respond best when their calls are answered by fellow Veterans and others with first-hand experience on their issues.
  2. On August 2, the Vice Chairman of the federal Merit Systems Protection Board ordered a stay of VA's removal of the former director of the Washington, D.C. VA Medical Center. MSPB's stay order requires VA to return Brian Hawkins, fired on July 28, to work pending the Office of Special Counsel's review of Hawkins' claim that he was wrongly terminated. VA has complied with the order and returned Hawkins to the payroll, but to an administrative position at the VA headquarters in Washington rather than to a patient-care position at the VA Medical Center.
  3. VA Secretary Dr. David J. Shulkin will be the featured speaker at VA's annual health-care and technology Innovation Demo Day, to be held Aug. 8 at Georgetown University's Lohrfink Auditorium.
  4. VA Secretary David J. Shulkin announced an extension of funding to organizations that applied for Fiscal Year 2018 grants under VA's Homeless Providers' Grant and Per Diem Program, but would be found ineligible due to new program guidelines.
  5. Congress has spoken with a strong voice in support of our Veterans this afternoon. The Forever GI Bill expands the success our Veterans have had with the GI Bill providing opportunities that otherwise would not be possible
