Native Domain


Native Veterans represent the highest proportion of rural Veterans in the country. The often isolated and dispersed nature of rural Native Veterans presents significant barriers for access and quality of care. In response to these challenges, the Office of Rural Health established the Native Domain to serve as a national resource on healthcare issues for rural Native Veterans. 

A variety of projects were developed to support implementation, identification and dissemination of information on culturally-competent best practices for rural Native (American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander) Veteran clinical care and outreach.

Homeless Female Veterans

Homelessness among women veterans is expected to rise as increasing numbers of women in the military reintegrate into their communities as veterans. Women currently make up 8% of the total veteran population and 14.6% of the active duty military, increasing to an estimated 16% by 2035. The number of homeless women veterans has doubled from 1,380 in 2006 to 3,328 in 2010. This offers links to several programs for female veterans.
