VA Gets In On Open Data Initiative, Launches Online Resource

1 min read

Veterans Affairs Department logoThe Department of Veterans Affairs has launched a webpage to fully catalogue agency open data and application programming interfaces for public access and use.

Va.gov/data was created in compliance with the Obama administration’s open data policy, the VA said Thursday.

While the site may not be fully functional until after several months, the department has already included data sets that could be used by innovators and entrepreneurs to create apps, infographics, reports and other products.

These include lists of housing, healthcare, job assistance, education and other services for homeless veterans, as well as locations of VA facilities nationwide.

Another featured open data set is a resource list of benefits and services for family caregivers of veterans, including legal and support groups.
