The Department of Veterans Affairs recently hosted the first event of its “Partnerships Showcase Series” on Thursday, June 26.  This inaugural kick-off featured an individual presentation via Google Hangout by Mr. Larry Long, Director of Recreation Therapy Service, Veterans Health Administration. Mr. Long is a subject matter expert who highlighted a successful non-monetary public-private partnership (P3) between the VA and a non-governmental organization providing recreational therapy to Veterans through fly fishing and fly tying.  Live Q&A from the Hangout audience was taken after the presentation.

In case you missed it, the video is now posted on YouTube with over 900 views to date!  Please help spread the word to your networks about this most recent Hangout, and be on the lookout for more events in the future.  If you have specific feedback or questions on the Hangout or would like to submit a topic of interest for an upcoming Hangout (i.e. benefits related partnerships, faith-based partnerships, partnerships in preventing homelessness, etc.), please email p3@va.gov with your suggestions.

Many of you may have heard of the “Yellow Ribbon” program … but some may be confused as to what it refers to.  Your confusion is warranted, there are two “Yellow Ribbon” programs, both very different from each other.

There is the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) offered by the Department of Defense for National Guard and Reserve members of the Armed Forces.  Through their programs, families are connected to resources through the deployment period and help with reintegration afterwards.  You can learn more about YRRP by visiting their website.  It’s a very useful program.

Then there is the Yellow Ribbon G.I. Education Enhancement Program provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  The Yellow Ribbon program offered by VA allows degree-granting Institutions of Higher Learning in the United States (colleges/universities) to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition and fee expenses not covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill for out-of-state students or those attending a private institution.  The institution can contribute a specified dollar amount of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution, not to exceed 50 percent of the difference.  Nearly 2,000 institutions are participating in the program for the upcoming 2014 - 2015 academic year.

If you’re a student or know a student searching for a school, we encourage you to visit the GI Bill Comparison Tool.  The tool will display whether the school participates in the Yellow Ribbon program.  To get specific information on the level of participation by school, please visit the Yellow Ribbon map.  We’ve listed the degree levels, schools, number of students, and maximum contribution for each Yellow Ribbon participating institution in each state.
