Veteran Monthly Assistance Allowance


    Current VMAA Standards

    • Sport standards differ from sport to sport. Evaluative criteria can vary from open tryouts, invitation-only tryouts, world rankings, achievement standards or a combination of standards and tryouts. The National Team and Military Standard for each sport is determined by the respective National Governing Body (NGB) or High Performance Management Organization (HPMO) based on the sport and/or international competitive analysis and existing athlete pipeline.

    • In order to be eligible for the VA monthly assistance allowance an athlete must be classified nationally or internationally in the sport. To find information on U.S. Paralympics and International Paralympic Committee classifications, please follow the links below:
