Serviced members, wounded veterans, caretakers, and many others may find useful information in a project called the National Resource Directory, or NRD. You can learn more about the NRD project on the Office of Warrior Care Policy website or by going directly to NRD.gov. Basically, this directory was developed as a guide to all sorts of resources that can be found at the national, state, and community level.
About the NRD (National Resource Directory) for Wounded Veterans
Three different organizations collaborate for this project. There are the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Labor. To populate the directory, information was pulled from a vast network of sources that include state, local, and national agencies, non-profit organizations, schools, and much more.
These are some examples of the kinds of information that you might find helpful in the NRD:
- Employment resources
- Training and education
- Support for caregivers and family members
- Guides for benefits
- Transportation resources
This online guide is very simply to use. Simply enter keywords. Optionally, you may also enter a location by city and state or ZIP code. This directory is entirely free for anybody to use, and you can begin searching for veterans assistance right here at NRD.gov.
