Steps to Joining the Returning Veterans Project Volunteer Provider Network
Step 1: Submit an Application
Step 2: Verification and Orientation
Once an application is received, the Returning Veterans Project will verify the licensure of the provider through the appropriate state licensing board.
Step 3: How Returning Veteran Project Clients Access Your Services
Once verification and orientation is complete and all required paperwork is submitted, the provider will be listed on the Returning Veterans Project online directory. Veterans, service members, and their families (commonly referred to as “Returning Veterans Project Clients”) will have access to the online directory and select their preferred provider.
Returning Veterans Project clients will then contact the provider directly to schedule an appointment.
