The Department of Veterans Affairs released its 2024 Agency Equity Action Plan today to help ensure that VA delivers on its promise to provide world-class care and benefits to all Veterans, their families, caregivers, and survivors ― regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or geographic location. As a part of this effort, VA also released the findings of a new study today investigating disparities in grant rates for disability compensation for mental health conditions. This study found that recently separated Black Veterans have grant rates better than or equal to other Veterans when they apply for disability compensation benefits within the first year of leaving the military and use a VA-accredited Veterans Service Organization.
