Native American Direct Loan

Since 1992, the Native American Veteran Direct Loan (NADL) program has provided eligible Native Americans and their spouses the opportunity to use their Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) home loans guaranty benefit on Federal trust land.

VA Recognition as a Tribal Organization

Native Americans have been vital to the Armed Forces for more than 200 years. After serving, these Veterans need access to local representatives to help with benefits claims. Many do not have easy access to these services.

VA has regulations governing which organizations can help Veterans and survivors with their benefit claims. This used to be limited to federal, state, and local or regional organizations. As of March 2017, Tribal organizations may have similar recognition as state organizations. This allows Tribal organizations to help Veterans and survivors in their communities with claims.
