VA’s adaptive sports grant program distributes $8 million annually to organizations that provide sports activities for veterans and service members with disabilities. The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) played an intermediary role from fiscal year 2010, when the program was implemented, through 2013. USOC received funds from VA and subgranted them to selected grantees. VA is now responsible for selecting grantees and program administration. This book reviews how VA selected grantees to provide activities for veterans and service members with disabilities; how VA monitors grantees’ use of funds; and what programs and activities were supported with fiscal year 2014 funds, and what is known about its benefits.
