Diné Naazbaa

Diné Naazbaa Partnership™ (DNP) is committed to improving veterans’ quality of life on the Navajo Nation through the coordination of local services and opportunities; from housing and employment to enrollment in VA e-benefits, healthcare, recreation, and more.

About The Program:

Diné Naazbaa Partnership™ (DNP) is a veteran-focused, community-led initiative to proactively connect with all veterans and ensure access to quality resources and opportunities available in collaboration with the community. The Navajo Nation is 27,413 square miles, the largest reservation in the country, and is one of the least supported in terms of infrastructure with many homes not having electricity or running water. According to the Navajo Nation Veterans Administration, the Nation is home to approximately 14,000 Veterans (2021). This rural and vast community makes access to support and opportunities challenging for veterans and their families and many are not aware of resources or the benefits they’ve earned. Veteran organizations focused on direct services can be supported by outreach to veterans that may benefit from their services; and local and surrounding community offerings are often unaware of what the veterans on Navajo Nation are needing, looking for, or how to best get involved. 

DNP is standing by to serve veterans, their families, and caregivers on the Navajo Nation. Coordinated assistance with veterans’ benefits and connections to local and national resources are just a call away!
