Grant Information

The overarching goal of this grant is to support the sustainability and expansion of the Growing Veterans (GV) Peer Support program. Through formalizing GV’s Train-the-Trainer program, GV will be able to scale up their mission of supporting veterans to a national level, as well as being better suited for fundraising and long-term development of the organization. The ultimate goal of this Peer Support program is to empower veterans and civilian allies as supporters of veterans across the country, and create a culture of peer support for all veterans as the antidote to high levels of isolation, PTSD, and suicide.
