The National Resource Directory (NRD) is a United States Government inter-agency web portal for Wounded Warriors, Service Members, Veterans, their families and caregivers.[1] It provides information and links to thousand of national, state and local resources.[2] The NRD was established to support the reintegration, recovery and rehabilitation of members of the United States Armed Forces. According to Assistant Secretary of Labor for Disability Employment Policy, Kathleen Martinez, "the National Resource Directory is part of our commitment to ensuring they have access to the resources they need to recover and successfully return to work and civilian life."[2]

Visitors to the web portal can find information about Veterans' benefits, including disability and pension benefits, VA health care and educational opportunities, homeless assistance and employment resources. The site also provides information for those who care for Veterans, such as access to emotional, financial and community assistance.

The links include federal, state and local government agencies, Veterans service organizations, non-profit and community-based organizations, and academic institutions and professional associations.

The National Resource Directory is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.[3]
