FOVA membership is open to organizations committed to advancing resources for the Department of Veterans Affairs medical care and research programs.

  • Members are listed as endorsers of FOVA's funding recommendations for VA medical care and health research.

  • Members agree to advocate overall increases in VA research accounts and will not pursue earmarked funding for special interests.

  • Members are encouraged to incorporate advocacy for VA research in their own lobby activities and to support FOVA activities when requested. These generally include responding to timely FOVA alerts and supporting and attending FOVA congressional briefings.

  • Urge legislators to sign on to Dear Colleague letters and support FOVA's funding requests.

  • Generate grassroots advocacy at key times in the annual budget/appropriations process.

  • There is no cost to join FOVA. However, from time to time, members may be asked to voluntarily contribute to the cost of hosting special events.
