State Departments of Veterans Affairs Innovations Dashboard
Each year, the US Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes state departments of veterans’ affairs by awarding the Lincoln Awards: Pillars of Excellence. These awards recognize specific innovative programs and benefits provided by states to their veterans. This dashboard visualizes data on these innovative practices over the past few years. Users can dynamically explore the data to see which states are being recognized, what types of service categories are winning awards, and how innovation in service delivery is changing over time.
