DATA and NOVA Veterans Win Federal Grant to Help Senior or Disabled Veterans Get to Vaccination Sites
Reston, VA – MAY 5, 2021 – The Dulles Area Transportation Association (DATA) and the Northern Virginia
Veterans Association (NOVA Veterans) have been awarded federal funding for a joint project to provide veterans who
are disabled or over 65 with transportation to COVID-19 vaccination appointments. While vaccination availability has
increased, an escalating critical transportation crisis is preventing our most vulnerable veterans from getting
vaccinated. This is particularly problematic for those veterans who receive their medical care from distant Veterans
Administration medical facilities and are without reliable transportation.
