Become a Nevada Veterans Advocate


If you have immediate questions about the Nevada Veterans Advocate (NVA) Program, contact our Training Officer, Justin Prazak via email at PrazakJ@veterans.nv.gov.

What Does a Nevada Veterans Advocate Do?

A Nevada Veterans Advocate (NVA) is a person who helps educate active military members, guard/reserve members, Veterans, and their families about benefits and opportunities they may be eligible for. Simply put: Nevada Veterans Advocates learn about veterans benefits and resources in order to share that information with their local communities.
