2022 Impact Report
From local grassroots events to a “fire watch” on the U.S. Capitol steps, IAVA’s fierce advocacy resulted in passage of the largest veteran health care legislation ever!
Winning for Veterans
Building on the advocacy groundwork of previous years, IAVA’s leadership of the VSO community yielded historic results for veterans in 2022.
By December 2022, IAVA had served more than 22,000 clients through our Quick Reaction Force (QRF).
Elevating Veteran Voices

Burn Pits and Toxic Exposures
The Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our PACT Act became law on August 10th, 2022. This vital legislation will finally deliver much-earned VA health care and benefits for servicemembers and veterans with toxic exposures, such as from burn pits.
In July 2022, IAVA applauded the launch of the new 988 Mental Health Crisis Lifeline/Veterans Crisis Line (VCL). This easy-to-remember number allows Americans in crisis to access the help they need.
Military Sexual Assault
Significant new changes to US military law that improve justice outside the chain of command for victims of military sexual assault and other serious crimes were passed within the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The Building Solutions for Veterans Experiencing Homelessness Act, legislation to permanently cut red tape on VA grants provided to organizations assisting homeless veterans and increase flexibility in assisting this vulnerable population, was introduced in the Senate.
Quick Reaction Force (QRF)
IAVA’s Quick Reaction Force leverages best-in-class research, data, and resources to empower veterans. We believe that national resources are the best path forward for veterans and have partnered with nonprofits who have been vetted to do great work. We use our research to create better lives for veterans nationwide.
Cost per case
IAVA is the face of the post-9/11 veteran’s movement, and we are more powerful when we speak as one voice.
IAVA is called upon by the media first because our programs and membership are authentic. Nowhere does IAVA move the needle further for veterans nationwide than its ability to engage the public and lead the national discussion.
We appeared in multiple print, digital media, and broadcast news outlets. IAVA leader’s appearances included NPR, CBS, PBS, NBC, the New York Times, MSNBC, Fox News, the Washington Post, and much more.
