      • The National Resource Directory (NRD) provides Wounded Warriors, Service Members, Veterans, their families and others who support them access to more than 17,500 federal, state and local services and resources to support recovery, rehabilitation, and community integration.
      • The NRD has been migrated from the joint Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs’ eBenefits Web portal to a Department of Defense hosting environment. As a result of this migration, there will be a brief service interruption for the NRD. All widgets, feeds, Web Badges and links will be temporarily inactive.

        This service interruption is only temporary, and the NRD should return to normal service shortly. A formal announcement will be made when a service resumption date is established. The NRD will be available at in the future.

        The NRD is being relocated to a Department of Defense hosting environment with the intent of improving the site’s capabilities for users in the future. The NRD remains a tri-agency initiative among the Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs. Maintaining and improving the site will continue to be a priority.

        The NRD represents one of the largest online collections of government and non-government resources specifically designed for service members, veterans, families and military caregivers, with a particular emphasis on resources for wounded, ill and injured service members. With a unique collection of more than 17,000 organized and vetted resources, the NRD provides information on a variety of topics, including benefits and compensation, education and training, family and military caregiver support, health, homeless assistance, housing, and other services and resources.

        We appreciate your continued interest and support of the NRD. Follow the NRD on Facebook and Twitter for ongoing updates. If you have any questions about this migration or specific NRD resources, please email us at
